Home improvement and garden retailer Bunnings Warehouse has opened its doors to customers in Sittingbourne this week, creating 50 new full and part-time jobs.

The new Bunnings Warehouse at Sittingbourne Retail Park on Mill Way replaces the former Homebase, and offers customers more than 30,000 leading home improvement and garden brands.

Covering 58,000 square feet, the store provides a wide range of services include paint mixing to key cutting, a garden centre and in-store D.I.Y. Workshops for customers to learn a range of skills first hand.

Bunnings’ team members have already been busy ahead of the store opening, helping with projects in the local Sittingbourne area. This included renovating an area in front of the community classroom at Canterbury Road Primary School, tidying up the external railway garden at Sittingbourne and Kemsley Light Railway (SKLR), refurbishing the gallery for local artists to display their work at Community Art Hub and revamping the benches and raised beds in the reading quadrant at Sunnybank Primary School. 

Ian Allcock, Complex Manager at Bunnings Warehouse Sittingbourne, said: “It’s great to open our doors to customers. All our team members worked hard to get the store ready and have undertaken many hours of training to make sure we have the expertise to help customers with their home or garden projects.”
