This comes as part of a wider decision taken by gedd!t’s parent company, the long established Adelaide-based Radio Rentals Limited, which is closing all of its retail store operations in the states it operates in.
The decision to close our retail operations was a very difficult and emotional one. It was only taken after careful consideration and pursuit of all other strategic options including a sale.
The company will support and counsel employees who are impacted and help them to find new jobs. To that end, an external employment agency has been engaged to assist. We recommend our employees to new employers.
There will be no impact on existing inRent rental contracts. Rental customers will continue to receive the benefits of renting with inRent, including ongoing product servicing and upgrades, and customer obligations under rental contracts are ongoing. Rental customers will be contacted by inRent directly with payment options for customers who currently pay their rental in our stores. Click here for further information and FAQs.
Stores will close around mid-June. Subject to trading some stores will close earlier. Click here for a listing of stores that are currently open. All gift cards will be honoured or refunded.
Customers can stay in touch via the gedd!t website, www.gedd!t.com.au/contact-us, call on 1800 199 285 or come into any store for further information.
