Unbelievable sales, online.
Welcome to hussh – we do the legwork, so our savvy members can live their best bargain shopping life!
hussh is a family business with its roots planted back over 35 years.
In the mid-80’s, hall-of-fame bargain hunter Jan (the one from the hussh social media videos) started Good-Buy Shopping Tours with her next-door neighbour.
In their time the pair sent over half a million bargain loving shoppers into the backstreet warehouses of Melbourne. On why she started business, Jan said; “Not everyone had time to do the research and find the best price but I did! I wasn’t interested retails sales of 10% off, I wanted to find the sales that were at least 40% off and more”.
As kids, Jan’s daughters Carlie and Alicia started working for the business as soon as they could count to ten. They’d earn pocket money in school holidays by stuffing envelopes for marketing mail-outs and cleaning the offices. Both worked stints in the office and hosted a few shopping tours full of bargain-hungry shoppers.
In 2012 Jan and Alicia began approaching wholesalers to see if they were interested in opening for special sale event days, ultimately leading to the launch of a new business, Melbourne Warehouse Sales (MWS). With the wholesalers on board, they started promoting these special sales to their 25,000 bus tour customers. These sales became more and more popular as word got around that the sales and discounts were the real deal. Great products and even better prices.
Having managed the database and sale notifications alongside her full-time job, Alicia decided it was time to leave the corporate world and became full time with MWS in 2014. Now able to give it her full attention she expanded the business into other cities and the number of members grew.
Following the acquisition of Closed Door Sales in 2017, Melbourne Warehouse Sales merged all names to become hussh.
In 2018 hussh opened it’s first dedicated pop-up warehouse facility and service in Melbourne for brands who don’t have their own space to run sale events.
