Comment on Hardware giant Bunnings set to start construction of Alice store by Dave.

Bunnings opened in Armidale NSW (Pop 25,000) in May 2010. The Home Hardware and Armidale Building Supplies are still in business, and only one business (a plant nursery) in a similar field to Bunnings has closed. In fact several new independent competitors have opened in the area. The staff are always happy and the service is great. The community loves the assistance from the BBQ’s and donations and the place is not full of kids and uni students. There are real experts and helpful staff who now have full time jobs and spend their money locally.

@7 BJ, You’ll find that Bunnings will attract workers to the area where the store is located because they want to transfer from another store or will move there because they know that their job is secure. There is no evidence in my area where a Bunnings opened that businesses close down when a Bunnings opens. Our town’s Bunnings opened 2 1/2 years ago and there are people who work there from all over the country.
