Retail ASO Awareness Part 2

East Side of Limerick City

There was not a single place that mentioned Saorview, We encountered a sorry story, Huge price tags again and tiny insufficient (sometimes misleading) specification tags, sometimes no specifications at all. NO indication of the ASO or DSO. If you didn't know about it you wouldn't know.

The first stop was Harvey Normans. Most TVs simply had a large price tag, that would be fine if it wasn't for the fact some of these TVs are good for little else other than being a monitor. There were some sets that mentioned MPEG4, but what use is that to a person who has never heard of the DSO, who doesn't know Saorview exists. More sinisterly this mentioning of MPEG4 implies that Harvey Normans does indeed know about the ASO, DSO and Saorview. Then if they know about it they are keeping quiet about it, which could mean they are with full knowledge and intent product dumping, selling goods not fit for their purchase.

Retail ASO awareness part1

I was sent into Limerick City to investigate the state of Retail with regards the ASO and DSO. I was given a form to fill in after leaving each shop.

I did not make my self obvious to shop employees as far as they knew I was a simple customer or window shopper.

One of the first things I noticed about the places I went to was the sheer absence of reference to the ASO, DSO and Saorview.
