The Bunnings Caboolture outlet will span more than 13,000sqm and have parking for over 400 cars.
Regional operations manager Margaret Walford said the new Bunnings would provide greater convenience to local residents living in the growing area of Caboolture and surrounding suburbs, and complement existing stores located in the Moreton Bay Council area. She told the Caboolture Shire Herald:
The opening will be celebrated with a range of events and in store activities...
Some delays were experienced due to COVID-19 related challenges and wet weather, but the store development will be completed not long after the previously announced time frame. Initially, the store was planned to open in the second half of 2022.
The new Bunnings forms part of the $80 million retail precinct at the Big Fish business park, on Pumicestone Road. A Caltex service station and McDonald's were built at the 15ha site in 2018 and 2020.
Plans for a shopping centre, which will be anchored by Coles and Chemist Warehouse and a Red Rooster have also been approved. Further plans for a PetStock retail centre and veterinary service were also lodged with Moreton Bay Regional Council in August 2021.
The huge retail centre will service not only the growing Caboolture region but also the future residents of Caboolture West - a satellite city set to be home to close to 70,000 people within the next 40 years.
