Perth will see its second Kitchen Headquarters (KHQ) retail showroom open in early 2013. Veteran retailer Rick Hart opened the first KHQ in 2010, stocking more than twenty major appliance brands including Smeg, Miele, AEG, Fisher & Paykel, Westinghouse, Liebherr, Scholtes, Wolf and Sub Zero.
Hart began retailing in Western Australia in 1975, after purchasing a container-load of refrigerators and selling them in his spare time. Starting with one store in the mid-1980s, he’d opened more than fifteen (and employed over 300 people) by the time Clive Peeters bought the business in 2000. With KHQ, Hart brings his passion and expertise back to appliance retailing with the emphasis on product range and choice.
