PUBLISHED: 16:00 29 August 2017
Around 20 new jobs will be created at a home improvement company when Worle's Homebase is replaced by a new store.
Bunnings Warehouse, an Australian and New Zealand-based homeware and gardening retailer, bought Homebase for £340million.
The Worle store, in Bristol Road, will be converted into a Bunnings, and will open later this year, although a date has not yet been finalised.
The existing Homebase staff will keep their jobs and will receive additional training.
Around 20 full and part-time jobs are also being created.
Paul Hill, complex manager at the Bunnings in Worle, said: “It is a great time to join the Bunnings Warehouse team here in Worle.
“There are roles available across all areas, with hours to suit.
“We want to build a high-quality team so we can build strong business foundations for the future.”
