"Bunnings provides a number of career development options for all team members, and I'm confident our new recruits will relish the opportunity to learn and grow with us," Mr Ram said.
Qualified team members including a bricklayer, cabinet maker, tiler, mechanic, plumber, electrician and horticulturists will be on hand to provide everyone with expert advice for their DIY projects.
Customers will have the opportunity to learn new skills with the store's range of inspiring free adults', kids' and ladies' DIY Workshops.
"The store will offer leading Australian brands and products with a new range of kitchen, bathroom and laundry displays in addition to an extensive outdoor living, leisure and lifestyle product range," Mr Ram said.
"Further to this, a wide variety of hardware and garden products, including building supplies, timber, paint, plants, gardening equipment and supplies, plumbing, lighting, flooring and tools will be available at the new Warehouse.
"Local customers will enjoy the convenience of the widest range of home improvement and outdoor living products at the lowest prices."
Bunnings Warehouse West Ipswich will be on the corner of Brisbane and Clay Sts in West Ipswich.
Bunnings is working to replace the store that's closing at Booval.
