Plan your trip to a Bunnings store

Head to your local Bunnings store at some stage in the next four weeks (click here to find your nearest store), the sooner the better though! Scroll down to find the easy questions we'd love you to answer whilst you're there (either on your smart phone in store, or when you get home).


Below is the secret shopper survey:

When you walk through the herbicide section what products catch your eye first?
Where are the glyphosate free products placed on the shelves? E.g. Slasher organic weedkiller or Seasol
Ask a staff member what weed killer they'd recommend. What do they say?
Bunnings says it actively promotes the use of PPE (Personal Protective Equipment e.g. masks, gloves, goggles). Can you see PPE being actively promoted alongside weedkillers?
