Across the network:


All this is half-working electronic equipment. Defective goods from the whole country arrive here.

Heaps of electronics.

5 thousand square meters.

    *Kettles, not cattles. That would be bad!

    Yuk, what a mess. Eve with 90 percent off, I’d be afraid to shop there.

    I’d love it! I’m into electronics, designing and building stuff. That place would be a gold mine of parts for me!!

    Plus, what these people don’t sell, they could extract the gold from it, making it, literally a gold mine! They do that a lot in the states, collect old electronics and extract the gold. Profitable too.

      You would have to have a little more than this factory full of parts to make much money from the gold in it. Most of the recovered gold is only profitable in India because they recycle millions of parts.

      But yes you are correct, there would be thousands of intact power system in most of those devices. Large high capacity transformers, capacitors, drivers and amplifiers. An electrical engineers wet dream!

    The Eldorado retail group is a bankrot since last year

    Would have been heaven as a child to go there. I loved broken electronics!

  10. CZenda says:

    Erm… isnt one supposed to dispose the electronic junk in a controlled manner? Strange the chain does not just fork the appliances back to where they were produced (China, regardless of their brand).

    Not much different than a junkyard for cars. Better than it all being in a landfill.

    Wow, what a badly run business. But very interesting to walk around the stuff.

    And is this post FIRST? Not that I care, of course!

  14. Precisely!It is important to include an analysis of mismanagement in any ethical evaluation of a business. Mismanagement points to inefficiencies in the business that impact the bottom line. If a company is terribly mismanaged, yet is flourishing, something must account for this profitability. Unethical acts and cutting corners are the likely source of the extra money. Many businesses say they have to bend the rules to survive in a competitive stadium.

    Eldorado, a supermarket chain of electronics. In 2010 there was a fire in the warehouses of the network in Kiev. This technique, which survived after the fire is likely.
