Woolworths’ Bunnings Complaint
Bunnings is reported to have paid well over market rates to secure a site opposite its store in Queensland’s Hervey Bay, which Woolworths is believed to have nominated as a potential site for one of its hardware stores. Bunnings is also reported to have been active in opposing development approvals sought by Woolworths as part of its planned store roll-out. Bunnings hasn’t been the only opponent of Woolworths’ plans. Its North Geelong permit application was knocked back after submissions from competitors in the area.
