The Warehouse Group has opened both a ‘Red Shed’ and a Noel Leeming store on the same day in Warkworth, on Woodcocks Road. 

The new stores, which span over 6200sqm, are described to be The Warehouse Group’s most energy-efficient sites in the country. 

Featuring 4900sqm, The Warehouse houses a whole assortment of general merchandise goods, including a stand-alone garden centre and a Warehouse Stationery print and copy centre. The whole pantry selection from The Warehouse, including its own line of Market Kitchen goods and the just-released $5 butter, will also be launched at the new location.

Meanwhile, the new Noel Leeming store in Warkworth is three times the size of the old facility and has a larger selection of whiteware, a built-in cookery centre, and a services hub. 

“We’ve been part of Warkworth and the Rodney area since 2003 and have witnessed first-hand the fast-paced growth of this community,” said Ian Carter, The Warehouse Group’s chief store operations officer. 

“Our new format, modern stores mean we can continue being there for our customers with a wider range, improved services and everyday great value across our brands.” 

Some 250 rooftop solar panels are installed to create 140KW of electricity to assist power the stores, with any excess sent back into the system. Warkworth will also be The Warehouse’s 40th shop to provide soft plastics recycling as part of The Packaging Forum’s Soft Plastic Recycling Scheme.
