Work starts on new hardware store
The developers are Williams Mitre 10, who have operated a hardware store in High St, New Norfolk, for more than 20 years. With frontages on Charles St and Stephen St, the new store will have a floorspace of 1200 square metres and will centralise the hardware, landscaping and timber businesses that have previously operated from separate locations.
The work is being carried out by Hutchinson Builders and is expected to take several months. The Stephen St buildings now being demolished were originally a fruit processing plant while the row of three shops on Charles St date to the late 1950s. Two nearby shops of a similar vintage and the Georgian house known as Sherrin's Cottage are not affected by the development.
