Once again, December has crept up and taken us all by surprise! We find that this time of the year is perfect for some reflection – to look back at not only what’s been achieved over the past few months but also in years gone by.
With that in mind, we wanted to take this opportunity to give you a quick tour of Betta’s history! It’s hard to believe it, but we’ve been around for over 50 years; we’ve been helping Australian families with all their electrical appliances needs since 1961. We’ve come a long way since the early days, and some of our biggest changes have been online.
Our bricks-and-mortar stores are at the heart of Betta, with over 200 shop fronts spread right across Australia. The fact that these are locally owned and operated is something that we as a brand are extremely proud of. This year we have seen a major revamp of the façades for all stores, so now you definitely won’t be able to miss us!
In the last few years, like most we’ve also expanded into the online space to better serve our customers. We launched an online store where you can browse and shop from our extensive range, from fridges and air conditioners, to washing machines and TVs, vacuum cleaners and even furniture. To make our customers’ lives even easier, we offer free delivery within 30kms of a Betta store as well as some really great rates for anywhere outside of this within Australia. We’re proud to say that a large number of our deliveries around the country are carried out by our very own Betta team members!
Christmas delivery tip: If you plan to shop online for Christmas presents, we recommend getting in early to avoid any potential delivery delays. We suggest placing your order prior to the December 15th just to be safe.
We also have a ‘Click and Collect’ service available online: it’s as simple as adding the product you’re after to your cart and selecting the in-store pickup option at the checkout. Your local store will then prepare your order and call you when it’s ready to collect!
Two of the most exciting milestones in Betta’s short online history actually occurred this year! We wanted our online space to go above and beyond just shopping and to offer our customers a central place to get tips and advice on healthy food and a healthy lifestyle.
It all started with a partnership with our hometown team, the Brisbane Heat, for our fantastic Be A Betta Cricketer online channel. Here the guys are featured in 20 tutorial videos, offering up their best tips and tricks to help you improve your cricket game.
It’s been a great ride so far and we can’t wait for what’s around the corner for Betta, be sure to stay tuned for more in 2014!
