Home improvement and garden retailer Bunnings Warehouse officially opened its doors in Rotherham today (14 December).

The new store is located on Parkgate, is over 70,000 square feet offers customers more than 30,000 leading home improvement and garden products from a wide range of global market-leading brands. Other services include everything from paint mixing to key cutting, a garden centre, timber cutting and in-store D.I.Y. Workshops.

Bunnings’ team members have already been busy ahead of today’s store opening, helping with projects in the Rotherham area. This included redecorating two bedrooms at Rotherham Hospice for families and installing shelving at Shiloh Rotherham, a drop-in centre which offers hot food, clothing and facilities for the homeless.

Rotherham Complex Manager, Ian Smith, said: "All our team members have worked really hard to get the store ready for opening and have undertaken many hours of training to make sure we have the expertise to help customers with home or garden projects."

To celebrate the opening, Johnny Nelson, former Professional Boxer is joining a welcome breakfast for team members.

Mr Nelson said: "It’s been a successful morning opening the store and celebrating with the Bunnings team members. I have no doubt that the store will be a huge success."

The store will host a weekend of events on 16-17 December, where customers can enjoy a range of family activities including the famous Bunnings Sausage Sizzle, face-painting, balloon modelling and even join Santa for a Story Time session (see in store for details).

This is the 12th store opened by Bunnings since it's first conversion in February this year.

Do you expect to see an increase in demand for garden pest control products as the huge trend for houseplants continues?
