The start of construction will be marked with a sod-turning ceremony on-site today at Parafield Airport to be attended by SA Treasurer Tom Koutsantonis, Member for Ramsay Zoe Bettison and local dignitaries.
The new 13,500sqm Masters Parafield Airport store is set to open in May 2016 and when complete, customers will have access to more than 36,000 products available across 19 departments.
The construction of the store will generate more than 300 local jobs. Over 130 in-store jobs will be available when Masters Parafield Airport opens its doors.
Parafield Airport Masters is being constructed in line with Mastersâ€™ latest design, with a large paint department, â€˜tool shopâ€™ and more than 10,500 hardware products. It will also feature a spacious garden section and extensive bathroom and kitchen display area and a large drive-through area to assist local tradies and builders.
Senior Property Development Manager for Masters Rob Hain said todayâ€™s sod-turning marks a new era in home improvement for the local community.
“The new store will bring an unrivalled range of home improvement and hardware products to Adelaideâ€™s northern suburbs. The construction will employ a number of people from the area and we look forward to strengthening our ties with the local community,” he said.
Masters is Australiaâ€™s fastest growing hardware store. It has 56 stores across Australia, offering a huge range of more than 36,000 products at Australiaâ€™s best prices.
