Home improvement and garden retailer Bunnings Warehouse officially opened its doors in Worle today (Wednesday 25 October), creating over 20 full and part time jobs.

The new store, which is on the site of the former Homebase at Queensway Centre, is 76,000 square feet and offers customers more than 30,000 leading home improvement and garden products from a wide range of global market-leading brands. Other services include everything from paint mixing to key cutting, a garden centre, timber cutting and in-store D.I.Y. Workshops.

Bunnings’ team members have already been busy ahead of today’s store opening, helping with projects in the Worle area. These include building new benches for students at Mendip Green Primary School and lending a helping hand at Weston Hospice Care, painting the reception area and making the walkway wheelchair accessible.

Regional Operations Manager, Joe Ambrose, said: “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.”

To celebrate the opening, Andrew Castle, Presenter and former British Number One tennis player is joining a welcome breakfast for team members.

Andrew said: “I’ve had a great morning opening the new store and celebrating with the Bunnings’ team. Like tennis, its takes passion and dedication to become successful and it is clear that everyone here is committed to making the store a hit.”

The store will host two weekends of events on 28/29 October and 4/5 November, where customers can enjoy a range of family activities including the famous Bunnings Sausage Sizzle, face-painting, balloon modelling and even join Peppa Pig & George for a Story Time session (see in store for details). 

Bunnings, the leading retailer of home improvement and garden 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.
