While the garden and outdoor living space was yet another hardware segment that experienced a surge in sales during the pandemic, it seems there is no sign of the boom slowing down with Australians’ love for their gardens expected to continue well into the upcoming spring season.
The ‘Hire & Rental’ segment has shown a significant increase in popularity. It is for this reason that hardware retailers are shaking up their businesses and offering customer’s equipment for hire, particularly as the building sector continues to grow post-pandemic.
Mitre 10 New Zealand and the local Wanaka community recently welcomed the stunning Mitre 10 MEGA Wanaka to the area, with the store’s trail-blazing design setting the bar high for future Mitre 10 stores. The new store is not only a one-stop-shop to all local residents and holidaymakers who frequent the area, but boasts environmentally friendly features not often seen within hardware stores.
