It’s just 8 months since Sunshine Mitre 10 opened its new superstore at North Lakes, and they are really proud to be part of the fastest-growing area in Queensland.
More than two years before the store opened the Sunshine Mitre 10 team recognised the potential of the location at North Lakes and they are mighty pleased with the results so far.
Sunshine Mitre 10 General Manager Neil Hutchins said the North Lakes community, including tradies and DIY customers had really embraced Sunshine Mitre 10.
“We recognised early that North Lakes would be a great location for another store in our network, which now includes over 20 locations throughout Queensland, from Weipa in the north, to St George in the west, and south to Brisbane.
“The Moreton Bay region is recognised as the fastest growing region in Australia with a population of over 490,000 people1, with predictions of up to 30% more over the next decade,” Mr Hutchins said.
The location of the Sunshine Mitre 10 store at 49 Stapylton Street is in the heart of the North Lakes retail precinct just a couple of hundred metres away from Ikea and the Westfield shopping centre and easy to get to from the Bruce Highway.
“That makes it super easy for our customers to get in, get out and get on with it, especially with our great Trade Drive-Thru.”
The new North Lakes site is over 8,400sqm, with over 3,400sqm under roof and open from 6am to 6pm weekdays, 7am-5pm Saturday and 8am-4pm Sunday. The North Lakes store stocks all the big-name brands like Weber, Stihl and Adventure Kings outdoor gear. It features 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 Thru experience Mitre 10 are known for, They even have a free Tradie BBQ Brekkies on the last Friday of every month.
Mr Hutchins said the Sunshine Mitre 10 team was also getting involved in the local community, not just through the locals they employ but also through community and sporting sponsorships.
“What is now Sunshine Mitre 10 was started by the Lanham family on the Sunshine Coast more than 110 years ago and being a part of, and supporting the communities in which we operate is really important to us.
“That’s why in North Lakes we have already created sponsorship partnerships with North Lakes Leopards Rugby Union, Hammerichs Coffee and various local schools and retirement villages,” Mr Hutchins said.
“We are pleased with how the store has gone so far and look forward to seeing further growth, alongside the community and local economy.”
