Mid 2014 opening for new Mitre10 retailer

COMING SOON: Owner Chris Jones and his daughters Mya, 12, and Tess, 8, at the site of the $2.5-million Mitre10 store, due to open in Horsham in mid 2014.

Work on a new $2.5-million Mitre 10 store on the corner of McPherson and Hamilton streets in Horsham will start in January and open for business by the middle of next year.

Plazzer Builders have the job on building the new  trade, hardware and retail store, which the Mitre10 group will use as a benchmark or ‘showcase’ example of what the franchise offers in products and services.

The store’s shift from its Wilson Street home of the last seven years, opposite Safeway supermarket to Meadowbank represents a major boost to one of Horsham’s busiest light-industry and service areas.

Owner Chris Jones said the move was also an exciting and necessary evolution for Horsham Mitre10, which would soon be able to present a greater product range and suite of services at a new spacious and modern store.

“It’s been frustrating in our current site which is too small and difficult to access. We’re ecstatic to be investing into a new and vibrant centre where customer service and product availability will be critical,” he said.

Development of the new store will consolidate a strong Western Highway presence for Mitre10 in the Wimmera.

Mr Jones’ brother Simon and parents Margaret and David own and operate franchises in Stawell and Ararat. Mr Jones agreed that  a strong and close liaison between the three stores strengthened customer service guarantees in the Wimmera.

He also emphasised that with his partner Beck Maddocks and daughters Mya and Tess that the project was as much a family as it was a business investment in Horsham and the region.
