Johnson Brothers Mitre 10 New Mona Vale Store: Still In Bassett Street

Johnson Brothers Mitre 10 New Store
73 Bassett Street
Mona Vale

For those who don't yet know, Johnson Brothers Mitre 10 Hardware have moved to 73 Bassett St Mona Vale. Only 300m west on the same side of the road.

The great new store opened on Monday April 3rd and means residents don’t have to lose time in traffic going further afield to pay higher prices. 

One of our favourites at the new store is the great Garden Centre, filled with natives, annuals and some wonderful pots from small to gigantic, as well as water features. Johnson Brothers have an on-staff Horticulturist who can help you with whatever you need to know.

More on that next DIY Ideas page!

The interior has an extensive Painting Section, Outdoor Living and Garden requirements, everything from lawnmowers to potting mix to gloves and anything else you may need. There’s Plumbing Supplies, their great range of high quality Timbers – in fact everything you will need – including special race car trolleys for the youngsters while you’re finding all on your list so they remain amused.

The other new aspect to Johnson Brothers Mitre 10 Hardware is their online store at:  www.jbhmv.com.au . It’s a new site JBH are building with pricing and delivery options. They’re aiming to have 10,000 products priced on there for purchase by the end of the month.

We spoke to James Johnson earlier in the week to gain a few insights into the new store:

Why did JBH decide to move to these new larger premises?
To better service our customers. We were aware of the difficulties of parking at the old site and we had absolutely no room left to grow our offering.
We wanted to increase our volume buys to get better deals and better prices for our customers.
We wanted to create a destination/experience for a larger range of people from the gardener to the DIY’er to the builder
How many square metres are there? 
Interior floor space: 4528sqm
Exterior floor space: Total Land area 12780sqm
How many car parks are there? 
Where do people get their timber from now? 
It’s all under one roof, but there’s a 2nd driveway (western) that leads to a drive-through in the building. This has two lanes and allows the customer to pick up timber and building supplies (such as yellow tongue and concrete) in an undercover environment. 
What range of products are in the new store?
There’s a large amount of new products in every department. The departments that are new or have grown are;
A new Outdoor Green Life department added to the larger Garden Centre.
The addition of a Dulux Trade Centre to our paint centre and the addition of a consult bench and a mobile phone photo compatible touch screen virtual painter.   
A new large display range of front of wall plumbing (taps, shower heads, etc), vanities, baths and toilets.

Children – there are some ‘driver’ trolleys to keep littlies amused?
Yes, they were aimed at keeping children amused, but honestly the most enthusiastic reaction has been from the big kids.

Are there any opening specials?
Yes and no, the short of it is, that we’ve repriced every single item for the new store. The new size has given us the opportunity to increase our volume buys and reduce our prices. We have very much set the store up around competitive pricing… We invite people to compare as we think they’ll be surprised. Our marketing budget has gone into making our prices cheaper, not multimillion dollar advertisements telling people that we’re cheap…. Rant over……we’ve also set up several pallets of specials down the centre aisle and on the end stands.

We can vouch for that – any comparison we’ve ever done on what’s available through the Johnson Brothers Mitre 10 stores proves not only do they give you more for less, their products are always of the highest quality too and give the best results. Not only that, we sometimes need a specialist product and the great team at Johnson Brothers, if they don't stock it, order it in without any dramas or delays.

Apart from that, you will find other items your 'Tradie' may need. Our on staff DIYer came home with some pairs of Tradies socks too good to pass up from the centre aisles displays and then was delighted to find a beanie included!

Top that with Trained and Friendly staff and you’re on a winner – a community based business focused on helping the resident customers and build up the core feature of any populace – a thriving concern that actually cares about excelling and remains down to earth while doing so.

Te JBH Mitre 10 'Autumn's Awesome sale catalogue is currently available, online here, filled with great specials that underline the other purpose of this Awesome new store - get what you need to get it done and then get home and get it done!

Products advice is available from the trained friendly staff at Narrabeen, Mona Vale and Avalon Johnson Brothers Mitre 10.
