Ah Bunnings…the all Australian destination and home to the Bunnings snag. How could it possibly get any better?
Well, Adelaide is could become host to one of the biggest Bunnings in the country, with a proposed build for Glynde.
The new store, if approved, would represent an investment by Bunnings of more than $48 million. It would also create more than 100 team member jobs in the local community, as well as approximately 130 jobs during construction.
Director of Property and Store Development, Andrew Marks said Bunnings welcomes the recent planning sustem reform which has given them confidence to pursue the project.
“We hope it will simplify the development application process for projects such our proposed Glynde Warehouse,” he says.
“We believe the Glynde site is well positioned for a Bunnings store that will provide residents living in the area with a much wider range of home and lifestyle products.
The Glynde store would be constructed with two levels of retail and would feature a main warehouse, an outdoor nursery, a timber yard and contained, underground parking for nearly 300 cars.
“We will continue to work with the relevant authorities throughout the development application process,” says Marks.
Stay tuned for confirmation of the build in the coming months.
