MORE than 170 Toowoomba locals are now official team members of the new $50 million Bunnings Warehouse Toowoomba North.

The new store is set to open its doors in early November and will be the second Bunnings Warehouse in Toowoomba.

Bunnings Warehouse Toowoomba North Complex Manager, Dan Olzard, who has been a part of the Bunnings team for five years, said he was excited to welcome local residents to the store as well as lending a helping hand in the community.

"Team members have supported a number of community groups already, including a special project with the Cancer Council to rejuvenate the gardens and public spaces at Olive McMahon Lodge, which offers accommodation to families supporting their loved ones undergoing cancer treatment.

"The team also installed two buddy benches and a sensory garden for students at Toowoomba North State School to enjoy," Mr Olzard said.


"Bunnings has been part of the Toowoomba region for more than 16 years and we are excited to continue supporting local community groups through hands on projects in the future."

Several of the new team members are also qualified tradespeople with skills in plumbing, machinery and horticulture and will be on hand to provide local residents with expert advice for their D.I.Y. projects.

"Bunnings provides a wide range of meaningful career development options for all team members, and I'm confident all our new recruits will relish the opportunity to learn and grow with us," Dan said.

Every weekend, team members will continue to provide free D.I.Y. Workshops as well as great advice and inspiration for D.I.Y. projects in the home and garden.

Bunnings Warehouse Toowoomba North will provide ongoing support to local community groups to raise funds for a variety of causes by hosting the famous Bunnings Sausage Sizzles.

Local customers will enjoy the convenience of the widest range of home improvement and outdoor living products backed by the best service.

Bunnings Warehouse Toowoomba North is located at 239-267 Ruthven St, Toowoomba.
