Bunnings to test smaller format stores in urban areas

Property Week has reported Bunnings UK MD, PJ Davis as saying: "We will be opening Bunnings stores before Christmas to test how that smaller format will work in the UK.”

Speaking at the Accessible Retail conference PJ told delegates that they will trial small-format high street stores of 20,000 to 50,000 sq ft in urban areas.  The map above shows how Bunnings dominates urban areas in Australia, this is just a part of the Sydney area.

Bunnings will be opening their newest conversion from Homebase at Harlow, Essex shortly. That will take the number of Bunnings openings in the UK to ten, half of their target of twenty by the end of 2017.
