Masters opening date top secret
Anticipation continues to mount as to when the new large-scale home improvement store will open its doors in Springfield Central.
While the indications are that it will open in advance of Christmas, the thousands of people driving by the Springfield Central site (pictured) every day suspect it will be sooner rather than later given the distinctive building appears to be nearing completion.
Springfield Land Corporation Chairman Maha Sinnathamby said the Masters store was not just a coup for the Greater Springfield City, but for the entire region.
"This store will change shopping patterns in the Western Corridor because people no longer have to traverse Brisbane to access such a huge range of products," he said.
"It's good news for amateur and professional renovators alike."
Four Masters stores are being built construction in southeast Queensland, including Springfield Central, Tingalpa, Morayfield and Nerang.
The opening of these four Queensland stores are expected to create up to 600 retail jobs.
Here is what Masters have said in relation to the opening:
Masters first store will open in September/October at Braybrook in Melbourne with a 13,500 square-metre outlet with a separate trade-only area dedicated to the building and professional industries.
Masters CEO Don Stallings said Masters launch will represent a new era in customer service while delivering a unique customer experience never encountered before in Home Improvement.
"We are delighted to finally be able to reveal the Masters name and to pinpoint the first store location. With just a few months to go until opening, we're putting the finishing touches to our plans and we are confident that our customers will be as excited as we are when they visit for the first time," said Mr Stallings.
"In years to come we believe this brand will become a very familiar one for Australian DIY'ers so it was important to choose a strong and simple name that will stand the test of time. Masters represents trust, knowledge and expertise - all the qualities we plan to offer to our future customers."
Mr Stallings said alongside the commitment to great service - with staff trained a minimum 100 hours to exceed customer expectations - the huge range of more than 35,000 products and an air conditioned, clean and comfortable store environment will differentiate Masters from many of its competitors.
"Masters is more than just a home improvement and DIY destination - we are offering products, value and service that will really excite our customers about improving their home and quality of living," said Mr Stallings.
