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.

  • Not a bad idea but I think I would prefer going in store.


  • I love this! Hopefully they’ll do free click and collect


  • Half the fun of going to Bunning’s is walking around and looking at the different products


  • I think it’s a pity. Why does everything needs to go faster ? It would be good when we could all go a bit slower. Think I would buy less by Bunnings when they go solely online.


  • Great will make it so much easier to organize your spring garden needs or reno jobs. Last time I wanted to buy from Bunnings something that was not in stock I had to wait nearly 2 weeks before I could pick it up, they call you and you go there and then have to wait until they find it out the back, took over half an hour. I also know that bunnings are already selling a few things on ebay, but is online going to include shipping or only pick up in store?


  • Thank goodness it’s about time


  • This is a great idea. There have been alpt of times i have seen something online and i go into my store to find that they sold out or yet to recieve them. Now i can simply purchase online.


  • A very timely move that will certainly make life easier for many but personally I enjoy my Bunnings visits.


  • I only go for sausages. Its great… but sausages?


  • I think my hubby would really love this!


  • Yes i can’t wait. This will be great!


  • Online buying will open up a whole new market to them!


  • This is so great. I will definitely be buying things online, particularly the smart home products which can often be hard to find in store. However, I will still take every opportunity to go to the store on the weekend to get my Bunnings sausages.


  • That’s amazing! I love Bunnings! I hope other companies, like Aldi, will do that soon!


  • About time they caught up not everyone can get to stores.
