Umart Online is an Australian computer store chain headquartered in Brisbane, Queensland. The company was founded in June 2000 and in 2002 was recognised as one of Australia's most popular computer retailers by PC User magazine.
In 2009, Umart Online opened a store in Melbourne, Victoria – its first store outside of Queensland. In June 2011, the Milton store was held up by a man with handgun who fled the scene on foot. In 2013, a new store opened in West Ryde, Sydney.
Umart focuses on moving large quantities of goods and for that reason sells primarily products that have a lot of demand and high turnover; they primarily sell computer hardware, software, and some consumer electronics products. Online ordering is encouraged, with competitive discounts (usually to the sum of A$10) offered on every products' recommended retail price for making a purchase via the Internet store.
Umart Online was involved in a legal battle with Sydney-based umart.net.au, which was forced to change its name to IJK as a result of losing the case in court.[no citations needed here]
