Everything about the new Campbelltown Bunnings Warehouse is bigger and better.
Located on the corner of Blaxland Road and Farrow Road, Campbelltown (pictured), it has opened its doors today for the first time.
Bunnings say the new premises gives locals access to an even wider range of home and lifestyle products than was available at the current store.
Spanning more than 17,000 square metres, around 5,000 square metres larger than the existing store, the new warehouse represents an investment by Bunnings of more than $40 million.
The new store has created more than 100 new jobs for locals, with around 150 existing team members transferring across, bringing the total Campbelltown team to more than 250.
The new Bunnings Campbelltown features a five-lane drive through timber yard, a large outdoor nursery, café, tool shop, along with a new format Trade Desk for trade customers.
It brings new in-store concepts to the local community, including Bunnings’s latest bathroom displays and a kitchen design centre to help customers design their dream kitchen.
The store has a wide range of site safety and workwear products all in the one location, making shopping easier and saving time for trade customers, as well as an aisle for transport and moving needs, to cater for customers moving home or office.
The store will also have convenient and increased car parking for customers, with more than 400 spaces available.
Bunnings Campbelltown complex manager, Geoff Burnell, said he can’t wait to welcome local residents through the doors to see the new store over the next few days and weeks.
“The extra space in the new store has allowed us to bring new concepts to local customers for the first time, such as the kitchen design centre and an amazing timber drive through for tradies,’’ he said.
“The team have been working flat out get the store ready for opening and I’m really proud of what they have achieved.
“We’re really looking forward to welcoming customers to our bigger and better Campbelltown store and helping them with all their project needs,” Mr Burnell said.
As part of the store opening, the team is also providing hands-on support to local community groups in the area.
“Some of our Campbelltown team members recently headed out to assist Harmony House revamp their existing garden and veggie patches, by providing new plants and mulch,’’ he said.
“We also donated two outdoor settings and helped mount artwork above the veggie patches for all to enjoy.
“The team will soon be heading out again to undertake a playground makeover at Blairmount Public School and a native garden makeover at Tharawal House.
“We really enjoy getting out into the community and we look forward to providing more assistance to local community groups in the future.’’
