Bunnings good news for Gympie

BUNNINGS is on track to open its massive doors to the public in mid-September.

The hardware superstore will be the biggest single retail outlet in Gympie, employing about 140 people and giving local shoppers an amazing choice of home renovating goods, services and tools.

The Gympie store is one of the biggest in the Bunnings' stable. Its floor space is an amazing 14,000sq m.

In layman's terms it is a massive building. I have heard some people say the shop is too big for Gympie and it won't last.

They may be right but one thing is or sure, Bunnings don't spend $35 million unless they have done their research and have plenty of confidence in the community they are entering. If Bunnings has that sort of confidence in the Gold City it's good news for the rest of us.
