Sydney, NSW (PRWEB) August 28, 2009
As the largest speciality photographic retailer in Australia, Camera House stocks over 1,800 product lines including a wide range of accessories, films, paper, chemicals, frames, albums and batteries. At the forefront of all digital photographic needs, Camera House offer all forms of digital printing and is the only photographic marketing group with its own warehouse.
The company sources products from all corners of the globe and has exclusive products designed specifically for Australian consumers. Recognised by their well known blue, yellow and white signage, Camera House remains an independent force in the industry, whilst similar companies have had to combine with Australian retailers to remain relevant in the market place.
The company own and operate their own distribution centre which allows for bulk purchasing. "We can cater for 100 retail stores nationally, which allows them to buy in small quantities," says Paul Shearer, General Manager at Camera House. "This enables the independent franchise stores to have low inventory investments and constant stock availability."
Through this mass purchasing ability, Camera House are able to negotiate independent trading terms and in many cases exclusivity of product. The retail stores have the ability to function with a 'just in time' process, as the company has a strong balance sheet and no borrowing that allow major investments in inventory from preferred suppliers.
