The time-honoured weekend tradition of waking up and making a beeline to Bunnings for a sanga in bread is returning to Bundaberg.
That’s right, the glorious Bunnings sausage sizzle is expected to return this weekend to Bundaberg Bunnings.
The hardware store, that also acts as a snag dispensary, suspended community sausage sizzles in March due to the COVID-19 situation.
Bunnings Chief Operating Officer, Deb Poole, said the roll out will happen across Queensland.
“We know our customers have missed being able to show their support for local community groups by stopping by the sausage sizzle and we know the important fundraising role they play for thousands of community groups across Australia,” Ms Poole said.
“So, we’re really excited to be starting the process of bringing them back in places where restrictions have eased.”
“We’ve spent the past few months consulting with community groups, governments and health authorities on how we can bring back our sausage sizzles safely for our customers and community groups.’
“We’d like to thank our customers for how patient they have been over the past few months with all the additional measures we have in place across our stores.”
“While we know they will be excited by this return, as are we, we’d just ask everyone to continue to be patient and respect the guidelines in place,” Deb said.
Those guidelines include:
- Separate ordering and pick-up points to allow for 1.5metres’ physical distancing
- Increased cleaning processes and hygiene requirements
- Increased signage to guide customers
- Additional team members rostered to encourage physical distancing
