History[edit]

Appliances Online was established in 2005 by John Winning, he spotted an opportunity in the market for a specialist online retailer of appliances and white goods.[2] The company was founded as an online competitor to other electrical and white goods retailers. The business model is based on targeting customers who are limited on time and, in most cases, have a replacement need.

Appliances Online has gone on to set up its own shipping service to the greater Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Gold Coast, Perth, and Hunter regions. The company employs around 150 people in its head office in Sydney and in the warehouses across Australia. In 2011, the average sale item on Appliances Online was $1000.[3]

In December 2010, Appliances Online purchased the domain and website for Big Brown Box to act as a retail arm in the audio visual market.[4]

The Appliances Online warehouse in Brisbane allowed Winning Appliances to launch its first showroom in Queensland[5] in August 2011.
