Rangiora Bunnings is one of seven that will close by the end of June as a result of Covid-19. Bunnings Warehouse has confirmed the closure of seven stores by the end of June, affecting 145 staff. The final decision to close stores had been driven by the trading environment that resulted from Covid-19 and from other factors including lease arrangements, individual store performance and location, Bunnings New Zealand director Jacqui Coombes said. The seven stores were expected to close by the end of June, so staff would be employed at the stores for another four weeks to help pack down the stores, she said. Bunnings closed three smaller format stores at Te Aroha, Waikenae and Paeroa following a review late last year.
