IF YOU'RE interested in a job at Gympie's new $35 million Bunnings Warehouse, its time to apply now.

Bunnings Chief Operating Officer Peter Davis said the new store would employ about 140 residents on top of the 300 jobs created during construction.

Mr Davis said the company was taking applications now but job hunters needed to act quickly, as applications close on May 15.

"Recruitment is now under way, with full-time, part-time and casual positions for team members and trade specialists available," Mr Davis said.

"Bunnings Warehouse Gympie will employ approximately 140 locals and will provide strong employment and on-the-job training opportunities for all team members."

Development of the new warehouse, on the corner of the Bruce Hwy and Hall Rd, is on schedule and expected to be completed and ready for customers late this year.

The warehouse will have a total store size of more than 14,000 sq m, ensuring an even wider range of products for local customers, Mr Davis said.

"The development will include a main warehouse, indoor timber trade sales area, building materials and landscape supplies yard and outdoor nursery.

"It will also have an indoor playground and café," he said.

"In line with Bunnings' commitment to sustainability, Bunnings Warehouse Gympie will implement a number of energy and water saving design features.

"They include energy efficient lighting and rainwater harvesting tanks."

Bunnings Warehouse Gympie will offer a wide range of leading Australian brands and products along with specialised trade supplies to meet the community's needs, he said.

"Local customers will enjoy the convenience of the widest range of home improvement and outdoor living products at the lowest prices."
