With so much time on our hands, many of us are turning to extra-curricular activities to keep our minds and bodies busy in isolation.
We’ve seen trends of baking sourdough bread, growing shallots from cut-offs, and up-skilling in fun new ways, but people have also been using this time to get around to those DIY home projects they’ve been putting off for months.
Unless you have a comprehensive toolkit and all the supplies necessary to get cracking, it’s likely you’ll need to visit a hardware store before you too can start taking part. Lucky for those interested, Bunnings Warehouse has made the prospect of getting supplies safer and easier than ever before with its new Drive & Collect service.
“As we continue to follow government advice relating to COVID-19, we’re adapting how we operate to make sure we keep everyone safe, while ensuring customers have access to the products they need,” Bunnings says.
Now, when you shop online at Bunnings, you can choose Drive & Collect as your method for collecting your order. After choosing a preferred pick-up timeframe, you’ll drive to your local store, calling or texting ahead of your arrival. A friendly Bunnings employee will load your products into your car, which will be parked in the Drive & Collect bay, before you head off home with your new supplies.
“Thank you to all our customers who have shown such care for our community and team as we have rolled out new measures to comply with social distancing guidelines. We are doing everything we can to protect the safety of our customers and our team,” Bunnings says.
The new collection method is now available at 250 Bunnings locations around Australia. Tasmania is unfortunately excluded.
