Harvey Electronics and eBay

In an aggressive move into the used audio equipment market, New York retailer Harvey Electronics announced last week that the company will begin to sell used audio products and special purchases of new merchandise on eBay, an online auction site, beginning June 1, 1999. The company also recently announced that it will sell merchandise through other website partnerships.

Franklin Karp, president of Harvey, stated that "our efforts on eBay are part of our evolving strategy to increase sales from Internet commerce. Selling quality used audio products and special manufacturers' promotions on eBay are a natural for Harvey. These initial efforts with eBay are intended to position Harvey Electronics as a strong competitor in the evolving e-commerce area. The company is also continuing to explore other Internet options."
