Bunnings No 2 - exclusive picture tour

Bunnings second UK store opened just before Easter at Hatfield Road, St Albans.  GTN Xtra paid a visit this week to see how the Bunnings concept had been delivered in a much smaller footprint than the first store at Griffiths Way, St. Albans.

With a much smaller outside garden centre area, as many of the existing Homebase sites, garden sundries are inside the main store but an extra cover has been added so that the entire outside area is protected from the weather.

Within garden sundries products were grouped by category rather than by brand.  As with the first store the range is extensive.

Out in the covered garden centre area Bunnings are reporting good sales levels of garden screening products.

The Hardware Cafe at Hatfield Road is a moveable coffee station so that it can be moved to other locations in the store for promotional events.

The next two Bunnings transformations will be at Hemel Hempstead, one of the largest of the old Homebase estate, and then at Milton Keyes where old warehousinig space is being changed into more retail Bunnings Warehouse ailses.

See the gallery of pictures below to see a tour of the garden centre and all the garden related aisles of the new Bunnings store.
