Bunnings confirms it will open its ninth Warehouse store in Worle later this year, taking over the site of the Homebase on Bristol Road.

The new store is approximately 76,000sq ft and will employ an additional 20 full and part-time team members, taking the total team members to 70.

A Bunnings spokesperson said: “This is an exciting development for us as our pilot programme continues the momentum of establishing the Bunnings Warehouse format across the UK.”

It will be the first Bunnings store in the south west of the country, following an announcement by Bunnings that it would be doubling its store roll-out target and extending its geographic reach to locations further north and south of London. Bunnings Warehouses already trade from St Albans, Hemel Hempstead and Milton Keynes. The most recent store opened in Folkestone on July 29.
