Gabby Leibovich - Catch of the Day, Scoopon, Grocery Run

I was in Melbourne for the day a couple of weeks ago and took the opportunity to make a quick visit to the new Catch of the Day head office and 17,000sqm warehouse in Braeside.

Catch of the Day are Australia's largest online retailer and earlier this year they raised a whopping $80m at a $200m valuation. I've bought quite a few things from them over the past few years including headphones for everyone in our office and significant quantities of wine for the office and home. Their deals are excellent and it's no wonder they're targeting revenue to reach $250m in the 2011/12 financial year, up from $100m in 2010/11. Catch of the Day also run the Scoopon and Grocery Run brands and in the video Gabby mentions they'll soon be launching a fashion retail site.

Apologies for the camera shake, I recorded the video on my iPhone.

  1. Great video, thanks Michael and Gabby. 3 week cycle, that's mind boggling for such a huge facility!

    @Michael - if you have to do lots of these videos (and I hope you do keep them coming!), I saw these recently: http://www.tiffen.com/steadicam_smoothee_homepage1.html.
