With Mitre10 Mega, Bunnings and Placemakers within easy walking distance of each other in New Lynn, I've spent the last few months sampling them all for various household renovation projects. Overall, Mitre10 best meets my needs simply because of the staff. They are eager to please, sometimes a little over-eager, but their product knowledge is always helpful and I find their advice trustworthy. I've saved money AND done a better job by following their advice.
Great range of products, love that they all have Columbus cafe attached so while the hubby shops kids and I relax with coffee and the little playground. My boys love the gardening section so we're always buying plants and seeds.
Great range of products and services is available, staff are experienced in several areas each dedicated to a certain section of the store. For my personal favourite is the plant section, lots to choose from and very good low prices.
I was very impressed with the staff at Mitre10 Mega as they were very helpfull with helping me find the item i wanted to purchase and as i hadn't been to that paticular store since they opened the store. It was very well set out and very friendly staff.
