Bunnings announces first Warehouse in South Yorkshire

Bunnings MK2

Home improvement and garden retailer Bunnings Warehouse has announced plans to open its first store in South Yorkshire later this year, creating 80 new full and part-time jobs in Rotherham.

Bunnings, the leading retailer of home improvement and outdoor living products in Australia and New Zealand, acquired Homebase for £340million in February 2016 – and plans to invest a further £500million building a new Bunnings Warehouse business in the UK and Ireland over the next three to five years.

The store is scheduled to open later this year on Forge Way, Parkgate, and the new Bunnings Warehouse team members will receive hundreds of hours of training in both product knowledge and specialist tasks such as paint mixing.

The Rotherham store continues the momentum of establishing the Bunnings Warehouse format in the UK, which offers leading brands and products, as well as in-store D.I.Y. Workshops for customers and support to local community groups.

Josh Hyde, Regional Operations Manager, said: “It is a great time to join the Bunnings Warehouse team here in Rotherham. There are roles available across all areas, with hours to suit.

“We want to build a high-quality team so we can build strong business foundations for the future.”
