Bunnings has announced they’ll be fully online by the end of the year.

We reported a few months ago that a trial was already underway in Tasmania and Melbourne, but to our excitement a planned nationwide rollout will be launching sooner than originally thought.

Managing director Michael Schneider is planning to have a fully transactional website selling more than 60,000 products by the end of the year.

The trials are reportedly doing well at the moment, with the nationwide roll-out has been promised by the end of the year.

“If we can go faster and it makes sense we’ll look at that but we just want the customer experience to be really good,” he told the Australian Financial Review on Wednesday.

“There are so many good online players out there we want to make sure the way we serve our customers is a very positive and a very Bunnings experience.”

Mr Schneider told The Age the online store would be more convenient for customers.

“A product that sells out almost every weekend is turf — we’ll put two or three pallets of turf in the store and it’s gone sometimes on the Friday night because customers want to secure that stock,” he said.

“That online purchasing … will help customers be more confident they’re not driving to a couple of Bunnings stores on a weekend to fill out the project.”

Now this sounds like a good idea! Just recently the store launched a new range of stylish homewares check it out here.

  • Can imagine some things would be advantageous for online shopping – the turf is one great example providing of course they deliver it too like Coles/Woolworths do with their groceries.

  • Although I love this idea and it will probably save us a tonne of money, sometimes a trip to Bunnings is our only family excursion on a weekend. A click and collect service would be awesome though and we could still pick up a sausage sizzle while we are there!!

  • It’s a great idea that I support as I live in a rural area that does not have any physical store.

  • We love a family trip to Bunnings. I have no plan to online shop.

  • This would be a great idea for me as I can’t walk very far anymore. I usually go to the store and can only walk down a couple of aisles before my back literally seizes up. If I can do that online I’d certainly be buying more. Hopefully they also do the click and collect system as well.

  • Yay.. This is great. Like many comments I hope they do click and collect and drop their prices!

  • Huh, wouldn’t have thought that. Personally I don’t like Aldi probably because they’re based out of town so it’s inconvenient, there’s usually only one checkout open and quite often they’re out of what I’m after.


    • Well that was weird, I posted this comment on something else ????

  • Will everything be available on Afterpay though? That’s the big ticket question & how much will freight be?
