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.
