One of Bunnings’ oldest Perth stores has called it a day ahead of their lease expiring.

The final day of trade for Bunnings Warehouse in Whitfords will be August 30, with the lease set to end in October.

The closest Bunnings is 6km away in Joondalup.

Other surrounding stores include Wangara, Balcatta and Innaloo.

“The Whitfords Warehouse is one of our older stores and we’ve made the decision to service customers from our surrounding stores, rather than commit to a further lease term,” Bunnings Regional Operations Manager Hayley Coulson said.

“All of the current Whitfords team members will transfer to alternative stores and our focus is on working with them and supporting them throughout this transition.”

The hardware heavyweight noted that the closure didn’t change its “ongoing commitment in WA or store opening plans,” that improved stores planned for Albany, Midland and Maddington, as well as a new smaller format store in Northam, would go ahead.
