Sunshine Mitre 10 will next year build a new store in North Lakes to service the strong and increasing demand from the building and trade sector in the area.
Plans for the store at Stapylton St have been approved by Moreton Bay Council and construction is expected to commence early in the new year.
Sunshine Mitre 10 General Manager, Neil Hutchins said the new store would complement other stores in the Mitre 10 network in the South East Queensland region.
“As the population continues to grow rapidly, there is increasing and consistent demand for building supplies and construction materials,” Mr Hutchins said.
“More than 25,000 people are currently estimated to call North Lakes home and that population is predicted to grow by approximately 30% over the next decade so the demand to service both trade and DIY customers is strong.”
“With the addition of another Mitre 10 to the Brisbane network, we are working to keep independent hardware strong. By working together, we can provide the best service and offer for DIY and trade customers.
“This new 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,” Mr Hutchins said.
Mr Hutchins said the new site was ideally positioned to service the local area as well as Greater Brisbane with its location close to the Bruce Highway.
The new North Lakes site will be 6,500sqm, with over 3,000sqm under roof. The new store will feature dedicated departments around building and hardware, coupled with extensive homewares, lighting and electrical, hand and power tools, kitchen, painting and decorating, gardening and outdoor, appliances and plumbing as well as the dedicated trade products and services and the well-managed trade drive through experience Mitre 10 are known for.
Mr Hutchins said just during the construction phase, the project would generate jobs for the building and construction industry, supplying employment for local builders and contractors.
