Just 100m from its rival Masters in Ellenbrook, Bunnings Warehouse Ellenbrook is due to open later this year at the corner of The Promenade and Mangles Drive.

The Ellenbrook warehouse will cost more than $32 million to build and be almost 16,000sq m in size, including the main warehouse, timber trade sales area and outdoor nursery.

There will also be parking for 390 cars.

Bunnings chief operating officer Peter Davis said more than 130 staff would be employed at the new warehouse, offering strong employment and on-the-job training opportunities for Ellenbrook residents.

‘It is going to be one of the largest Bunnings Warehouses built in WA and over 180 construction jobs will be created throughout the building process,’ Mr Davis said.

LWP Property Group managing director Danny Murphy said it was exciting to see more large retailers moving into Ellenbrook.

‘Bunnings coming to Ellenbrook represents an important part of the Stage 3 expansion of the Ellenbrook Town Centre,’ Mr Murphy said.

‘Stage 3 of the Ellenbrook Town Centre, will see the extension of key roads, including The Parkway, which will open up a number of exciting new High Street sites for development.’
