The new Bunnings Wharehouse Port Macquarie store is expected to be operating by early 2019.
Bunnings’ general manager property Andrew Marks confirmed the news on Thursday, May 17.
The international household hardware chain is building a news mega outlet on John Oxley Drive.
Work at the site is likely to commence in the coming days, Mr Marks said.
“We have received development approval to build a new Bunnings Warehouse in Port Macquarie which will replace the existing store,” he said.
“The new Bunnings Warehouse Port Macquarie represents an investment of over $43 million and is expected to create more than 60 jobs for local residents with a further 250 jobs during construction.
“The builder is currently on site with construction due to commence in the coming days.
“The new store is expected to open in early-2019.”
Mr Marks said Bunnings looks forward to continuing to work with Port Macquarie-Hastings Council and the local community throughout the construction of the new warehouse.
