Michael Rodwell, Bunnings Area Manager, said construction was progressing as planned at the New Bunnings Mount Isa on West Street.
"The building structure is now fully enclosed, and the internal floors and fit out have recently commenced. Car park works are expected to get underway soon, with opening still on track for early 2022," Mr Rodwell said.
"All team members from the existing Mount Isa store will transfer to the new store once complete, and will be joined by additional team members.
"We look forward to welcoming local customers to the new store next year."
