Question details

Consider and discuss the following question:

 

A sale catalogue for a Sydney department store was delivered to Harvey's farm in Bourke. It contained the following advertisement:

 

NEVER TO BE REPEATED OFFER

Singsong 65 inch Curved 3D LED Smart TV - $1,000 CASH ONLY

Personal Shoppers Only

 

As this represented a $2,000 discount on the normal price, Harvey hopped into his pickup truck and drove the 775 km to the Sydney store. He raced up the escalators to the relevant department, collared a shop assistant and said:

 

I accept your never to be repeated offer. Here's my $1,000 cash for the Singsong 65 inch Curved LED Smart TV. I have my pickup truck waiting downstairs to take it home.

 

The shop assistant refused to sell Harvey the television at the discounted price, saying:

 

Sorry, but there was a printing error in that catalogue. It is the 32 inch Singsong which is on sale for $1,000. Would you like to buy one of those? Otherwise it is $3,000 for the 60 inch 3D Singsong.

 

Harvey comes to you for legal advice.

 

question: Advise him as to his prospects of making a successful contractual claim for the TV at the advertised price.
