After more than a year in planning and construction, the new Sunshine Mitre 10 North Lakes store will throw open its doors this weekend and welcome the community.
The grand opening party at the store on Stapylton Street will be on Saturday 12th November will include free family fun including sausage sizzle, snow cones, fairy floss and face painting, a Hark Smoker Demonstration and taste testing, a visit from the Dulux dog, giveaways and supplier demonstrations as well as some great grand opening specials.
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.
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. It will feature dedicated departments including building and hardware, homewares, lighting and electrical, hand and power tools, kitchen, painting and decorating, outdoor living, a large garden centre, 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.
Construction of the new store began in March 2022, with plans approved by Moreton Bay Regional Council in December 2021, and even with the record-breaking rainfall during the build, the opening was on time.
“It’s a credit to our construction team and representative of the industry and the resilience of builders and tradesmen throughout the construction industry, who have been facing such huge challenges not only from the weather, but from supply chain issues and cost increased,” Mr Hutchins said.
The new store has employed more than 30 staff and cater to the strong and increasing demand from the building and trade sector in the area.
Mr Hutchins said more than 25,000 people are currently estimated to call North Lakes home, with the population 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 independently operated 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.
The Sunshine Mitre 10 North Lakes store grand opening will start from 7am, with family fun activities will be available from 8am to 12pm, the Dulux dog visit will be from 10-12pm. Grand opening specials are strictly while stocks last.
