“Bunnings is investing more than $23 million on the site of over two hectares. More than 100 jobs will be created in the local community once the store opens, and the building process has created a further 160 construction jobs.
“The warehouse will offer a wide range of leading Australian brands and

    I can’t wait for Bunnings to arrive. 1 because they will have what I need in stock and reasonably priced and 2 because I think Big O would be the perfect location for an indoor sports complex.

    I have mixed views here. Having lived in Alice and seen the struggle some of the hardware outlets have had to cope with, now along comes the biggest in the nation. What lies around the corner? This may be great for consumers but for hardware retailers we will just have to wait and see. I will follow this with interest.
