Sunshine Mitre 10 will celebrate the opening of their new flagship store at Nambour on Saturday 24th July, with Block TV star Scott Cam as well as 2020 series winners Jimmy and Tam there to celebrate, with huge specials and giveaways throughout the day.
Sunshine Mitre 10 general manager Neil Hutchins said it was exciting to see the new 13,000 square metre site opening.
“The store at 980 Nambour Connection Road will employ 40 staff and offer the latest variety of products to our retail and trade customers,” Mr Hutchins said.
“To celebrate, we are having a huge opening day on Saturday 24th July. The store will open at 8am and we have a catalogue full of great specials.
“At 10am Scott Cam, host of The Block, as well as 2020 series winners, Sunshine Coast locals Jimmy and Tam, will officially cut the ribbon and open the store. They will be around until 12noon to chat to fans and take photos.”
Mr Hutchins said there would be a huge free sausage sizzle as well as fairy floss for the kids, along with a balloon artist.
“There will be plenty of suppliers throughout all departments to answer questions and give advice about DIY projects. There will also be loads of giveaways throughout the day with each customer receiving a special reusable bag celebrating Sunshine Mitre 10’s 110-year history.
With 18 stores throughout Queensland, Sunshine Mitre 10 is one of the largest independently operated and owned hardware suppliers in Queensland.
“We have been steadily expanding over the past few years, with new sites in Bundaberg, St George, Brisbane City and now a flagship in Nambour. This new Nambour location is special, because Nambour is where the company’s 110-year history began.
“So, it is great to see this new store, which will support our retail customers as well as the increasing demand on the Sunshine Coast for trade supplies.
“Sunshine Mitre 10 already employs more than 400 staff across our network of stores in Queensland, including the seven sites we operate throughout the Sunshine Coast. We are pleased to have committed to this multimillion-dollar investment on the back of a 25-year lease at this location.”
The new site includes 4,000 square metres under roof and will be one of the largest in the Sunshine Mitre 10 network with extensive retail product and trade supply through their well-managed trade drive through experience.
“This new flagship store will include all the latest brands and products and showcase the best hardware product available. The site will have everything you need to get in, get out, and get on with it. The entire project has been meticulously designed to provide the customer with the ultimate hardware shopping experience,” Mr Hutchins said.
The new store will feature dedicated departments around building and hardware, coupled with extensive homewares, electrical, hand and power tools, kitchens, painting and decorating, gardening and outdoor, appliances and plumbing and all the dedicated trade products and services Sunshine Mitre 10 is known for.
Mr Hutchins said Sunshine Mitre 10 would continue to operate the existing Court Road store for the convenience of the local community, and work to transition the 75 years of loyal customers that exist at that site, across to the new location.
