    Loitering, with intent, to buy.

    Wow. A Mega store. Now you'll be able to get lost among more aisles, meet more shop assisants who are no assistance, see more items that are almost but not quite what you need and have to cross a larger carpark before driving off to your current shop to buy what you went into Bunnies to get.

    Richard,

    My nearest Bunnings is 45 minutes away. I have a Home hardware and a Mitre 10 within two minutes of my house.

    I still buy most of my hardware from Bunnings because it's cheaper for me to go 45 minutes and buy it, including petrol, than to pay the exhorbitant prices locally. Strangely enough, both local stores are usually within a dollar of each other normally about 50% dearer than Bunnings. Coincidence? I think not. :mad: I'd love a Bunnings nearby, even if only to make the other ones more accountable.

    Is there anything easier done than said?

    Succinctly put Dan. Why do people wonder why the little local stores of all types are disappearing?

    This thread is 14 years old, and things haven't improved. The following is a message I've just sent to Bunnings FB page, for all the good it will do.

    "Well, Bunnings, your Thornleigh store has just lost at least one sale because you can't staff your registers properly. I was one of at least six people waiting at a cash register - none were staffed. An assistant came to the register, but immediately took a phone call.
    As I was sick of waiting I rang the store from the queue and eventually someone answered. When I told whoever answered of the problem, a staff member opened another register, but started serving new arrivals, rather than calling the existing queue over.
    I have no idea when the queue I was in was eventually served. When the young lady at the register took another call, I left.
    Frankly, it is quicker for me to drive to a small independent store at Hornsby, where at least I know I'll be served quickly, and there are staff who can assist. The sooner you go broke, the better."

    One thing that has changed is self checkout and most of the large stores I go to have self checkout facilities but they are not always open. I asked a checkout staff member if there was any pattern as to when the self checkouts were open but she said she didn't know.

    I refuse to use self check-outs. In this case, I wanted to buy fertiliser & mulch. I would have had to bring them in on a trolley from outside - I'm not sure what the process would have been after that. At a cash register I could simply tell them what I wanted, pay my money and collect them on the way out.

    Like it or not that is how things are going and the reality is there is no serious alternatives to Bunnings for the weekend warriors do I don’t see them
    they have brought out a new app for trade account customers where you scan and pay for the items on your phone so don’t need to go to cashier
    havnt bothered to try it yet though

    I don't like self checkouts either but given a choice of waiting in a line behind a customer with 101 irrigation fittings, and a self check out, I will use them.

    When the checkouts are busy at the exits, I go to the tools checkout, usually a lot quicker.
