Giant store which was overwhelming at first, we had specific items needed in mind so was a little lost. The first person we asked on the staff didn't give us the time of day as she was too busy, but then we found another member who even though he was busy took 2 seconds to tell us exactly where we needed to go. This helped us find what we needed quickly, the checkout was busy but was processed fast enough.
Staff are generally helpful, if you can find them! The cafe has great coffee but the playground is a terrible design. It is almost impossible for an adult to get into if a child is stuck at the top hurt, or scared. Would hate for there to be an emergency as the layout would make it very very hard to help.
Mu husband visited this morning because he checked out some hardware websites and bunnings had the best website. Easy to use and an all round great site. When he visited, he said the man at the door was very friendly and the staff were helpful. We will be back!
The selection of plants here are a bit different from those at Mitre 10, so may be best to visit both stores. The prices here may be a bit lower for some items as well, but I felt as though there's a lack of staff knowledgeable on specific plants of interest, but nevertheless willing to help.
We head here often even though we live out of town but this is our nearest hardware store where we know we can get what we need all the time. Plenty of parking, helpful staff and great selection of products, can spend longer than expected just browsing around gathering up ideas for next projects. Have a lovely outdoor selection of plants too, each one has been a flourish in our garden.
