Bunnings plans smaller-format stores in the UK

"Our absolute priority is on proving up the Bunnings pilot concept," said Michael Schneider, managing director of the Bunnings Group.

"Our absolute priority is on proving up the Bunnings pilot concept," said Michael Schneider, managing director of the Bunnings Group.

Bunnings plans to open smaller-format stores as part of its pilot programme in the UK, but not until later in the year, according to a spokesperson. The company has denied reports of expansion going significantly beyond the conversion of the existing Homebase stores. Michael Schneider, managing director of the Bunnings Group, said "We have no current plans for network expansion in the UK. Our absolute priority is on proving up the Bunnings pilot concept and improving execution in the Homebase stores. While we will always look to optimise locations of our stores, references to plans for large scale store openings are completely incorrect."
