John is no stranger to the Benalla store, having been a loyal customer for some time, purchasing hardware supplies for his family’s rural business enterprise in Taminick, near Benalla. “I’ve been a customer at the Benalla store for many years. I understand its strengths and have a clear vision for its future potential,” said John.

“Benalla Mitre 10 is a terrific hardware store. We have a great team of experienced staff and an outstanding range of hardware and electrical products to ensure that Benalla residents receive all the help they need for their trade jobs,” said Gary.

By purchasing the new Benalla store, John and Gary now operate four Mitre 10 stores across Victoria. The Woodruff’s other three Mitre 10 stores include Kew, Hawthorn and Richmond in inner-city Melbourne. With aspirations to make Benalla Mitre 10 Home & Trade the retail store of choice for hardware and electrical products in the Benalla region, the Woodruff’s team will draw on their long-standing experience in hardware to achieve this goal. “I am confident that we will be able to bring some new faces and fresh ideas to help re-energise the Benalla Mitre 10 Home & Trade store for future trading,” added Gary.
