a lot’s changed, but our values haven’t

Mark Spring, dtr Managing Director

Way back when black and white televisions were first launched in New Zealand, they were around the same price as a new car. And everyone wanted one. That’s when a forward thinking businessman named Stan Pemberton had a vision. To make televisions more accessible, by renting them, on affordable weekly payments. Stan opened the doors of Dominion Television Services in Howick, back in 1962.

From those humble beginnings emerged dtr. And while black and white televisions and renting appliances has become a thing of the past, Stan’s vision of making things accessible to everyday kiwis is at the heart of what dtr stands for today.

Local companies who’ve been around for as long as we have, don’t achieve that without constantly adapting and evolving to meet customer needs and making it easier to do business with us.

So whether you’re purchasing off us online, or in one of our 23 branches across the country, we’ve developed a range of affordable payment options to suit every need.

Whether that’s paying by cash or card. Buying now, paying over 12 weeks interest free with easi-pay.  Or financing bigger purchases over a period of up to 60 months with easi-own, we’ve got you covered.

But it doesn’t stop there. We’re putting our money where our mouth is, by introducing a Price Match Promise. Find a lower normal retail price on any item in-stock locally, and we’ll match it!

With affordable payment options to suit your needs, plus our price match promise, we reckon you’ll feel right at home with dtr.

“everyone deserves a fair go, respect and a moment of brightness. we’ll be fair and try our best. you’re always welcome at dtr”.

These are the values we live by as a company.
And they’re written on the wall of every branch.
