Hardware giant gives vote of faith in Alice

 

 

 

 

The huge, 12,000 square meter Bunnings hardware store, costing $23m and employing a staff of 75, was officially opened on the North Stuart Highway this morning as a beacon of faith in the future of Alice Springs. ERWIN CHLANDA reports. PICTURED is manager Annmarie Beech.

Hardware giant Bunnings set to start construction of Alice store

Bunnings is currently finalising the building contract for its new warehouse in Alice Springs, according to the company's Chief Operating Officer, Peter Davis.

He says the firm "is looking forward to commencing construction within the next two months".

The store, on the North Stuart Highway, represents an investment of over $23 million, says Mr Davis, and will provide employment for more than 100 local residents.

It is expected to open in mid 2013.

Progress with Bunnings warehouse

The Development Consent Authority will next week consider a development application from the hardware giant Bunnings planning to build a warehouse on the North Stuart Highway in Alice Springs.
Bunnings CEO Peter Davis says: "If approved, this development will create more than 110 jobs for local residents.”
A spokesman for the department says the land at the corner of Stuart Highway and Power Street is zoned Light Industry. As warehouse and showroom are permitted uses, the application does not need to be exhibited to the public.
The application deals with minor setback (alignment) and car parking issues.

Hardware giant Bunnings confirms it's heading for Alice

Bunnings has now confirmed the Alice Springs Online exclusive report last Thursday that the hardware giant is coming to town.

The firm is moving to buy a two hectare block at 218 North Stuart Highway (Lot 9186 - see map above).

In a media release today (Monday) Bunnings says the new warehouse, if approved, will create more than 110 jobs for local residents.

"Bunnings plans to invest more than $23 million in the new warehouse
which will have a total store size of more than 12,000 square metres
consisting of a main warehouse, kid’s playground, nursery, café, and
parking for over 200 cars," says Chief Operating Officer, Peter
Davis. ERWIN CHLANDA reports.
