Bunnings Warehouse opens its doors in Broadstairs

Bunnings Warehouse Broadstairs

Home improvement and garden retailer Bunnings Warehouse opened its doors to customers today, 12th September 2017 at Westwood Gateway Retail Park in Broadstairs, Kent.

Creating over 43 new full and part time jobs in Broadstairs, the new store is 67,000 square feet and the second Bunnings Warehouse in Kent, following the Folkestone store in July.

Officially opened by former England centre-back turned pundit Gary Pallister, the store offers customers more than 30,000 leading home improvement and garden products from a wide range of global market-leading brands, including some not previously available outside the trade. Other services include everything from paint mixing to key cutting, a garden centre, timber cutting and in-store D.I.Y. Workshops to learn a host of skills first hand.

Bunnings’ team members have already been busy ahead of today’s store opening, helping with projects in the local Broadstairs area. These included creating a garden at Pilgrims Hospice, painting an outdoor classroom at Drapers Mills School and filling 11 bespoke planters at St. Ethelbert’s School.

Broadstairs’ Complex Manager, Simon Woodhall, said: “It is great to finally open our doors. All our team members have worked really hard to get the store ready for opening and have undertaken many hours of training to make sure we have the expertise to help customers with home or garden projects.”

Gary Pallister added: “I’ve had a great time opening the Broadstairs store and celebrating with the Bunnings’ team members. This area is where it all began for me and I am sure it will be a great success.”

The store opening will be hosting two weekends of events on 16th/17th and 23rd/24th September, where customers will be able to enjoy a raft of family activities including the famous Bunning Sausage Sizzle, face-painting, balloon modelling and even join Peppa Pig & George for a Story Time session (see in store for details).
