Andrew Barr is spruiking the Woolworths group lastest venture, Masters Home Improvement, now open out at the airport.
This morning I joined Ben Camire, National Operations Manager of Masters Home Improvement, to officially open Canberra’s first Masters Home Improvement store at Majura Park.
The new Masters store will contribute some 170 new jobs and boost employment located at Canberra Airport towards 11,000 workers.
It will also give consumers more choice in the growing retail precinct at Majura Park. This means a wider selection of places to shop and greater convenience and value, which can only be a good thing for ACT residents.
Masters Home Improvement is a joint venture between Woolworths and US-based home improvement chain Lowe’s that has been established to compete for a market share in the Australian big-box warehouse retail sector.
The end of Bunnings as the centre of civic life in Canberra?
