A new, smaller Bunnings format store is expected to open its doors next year in the Victorian rural town of Seymour, with construction already underway.
The central wall of the building is already now complete, with steel framing now going up and work on the roof expected to begin in the next month, according to the Seymour Telegraph.
Features of the new store include a timber trade drive-through and an outdoor nursery, alongside the main retail area.
Bunnings Area Manager Mary Corso said that the new development represented a significant direct investment in the local community and would create a number of new team member positions, according to the Seymour Telegraph.
“The new Bunnings Seymour will create up to 45 jobs for local residents and we’re excited to bring a wide range of home improvement and lifestyle products to the Seymour community,” she said.
The new small, format store will sit across 4500 square metres with parking allowed for 70 cars, according to the report.
The new Bunnings Seymour store is located at 63 Anzac Ave, Seymour.
