MORE than 100 local jobs will be created with the opening of a new Bunnings Warehouse Wangara store later this year.

The warehouse will open in April at the former Masters store on Hartman Drive after Bunnings received development approval last year to take over the site.

Ahead of the opening, newly recruited team Wangara members have been helping local groups with community projects.

This week team members helped Wanneroo City Soccer Club members paint the clubrooms and Pearsall Primary School students plant vegetables.

Bunnings Warehouse Wangara complex manager Marty Hornbuckle said team members enjoyed lending a hand in the community and would continue to do so once the store opened.

“Our team members are part of the community and we are looking forward to actively supporting a wide range of local community groups,” he said.

Bunnings general manager property Andrew Marks said the Wangara store was one of four former Masters locations where Bunnings would open in coming months.

He said once completed, the Wangara warehouse would span more that 13,000sq m and provide more than 100 new jobs for local residents.

Bunnings will also open stores at former Masters sites in Bayswater, Mandurah and Baldivis.
