Just three miles from the original Griffiths Way Bunnings store in St Albans, which opened earlier this month, work is currently underway at the Hatfield Road Homebase store, which closed on February 12. The store is expected to re-open under the Bunnings Warehouse branding in April.

Meanwhile, Apsley Mills Retail Park, Hemel Hempstead, has been revealed as the third pilot Bunnings store location, with dates for closure and re-opening not yet confirmed.

The fourth store will be the Snowdon Drive Homebase in Milton Keynes. This large store is reportedly a more similar size to the traditional Bunnings stores in Australia and New Zealand.

Although dates are not yet known for the third and fourth outlets, Wesfarmers has confirmed that the store developments have been carefully planned to capitalise on the important summer 2017 trading period.
