The growth of Wagga has led Bunnings Warehouse to explore its third location in the span of 18 years.
Bunnings Warehouse first opened at the Homebase on Hammond Avenue in 2001 and moved to its current location on the corner of Dobney and Pearson streets in 2009.
Bunnings Warehouse acting general manager of property Garry James said the proposed site for relocation is 64 Pearson Street Wagga, which fronts the Sturt Highway.
"We are in the process of completing due diligence on a site which is proposed to replace the current Wagga Wagga store," Mr James said.
"If a development application is approved, the new Bunnings Warehouse development would represent an investment of over $60 million and span over 18,500 square metres of retail, with parking for over 400 cars.
"Team members from the existing Wagga store will transfer to the new store once complete and will be joined by additional new team members."
The current location is 14,765 square metres and has one less car parking space, but the new location is hoped to allow better access and more visibility.
The expansion of the store has been stimulated by the Do-It-Yourself movement and the desire to create personal spaces which also taps into the real estate game.
"We are a DIY store and show what you can do to an already established home or apartment, where it's not just DIY but it's creating your own space," Wagga team member Matt Beh said.
Mr Beh said TV shows like The Block and House Rules are inspiring people to constantly add improvements to their homes.
"We find it more so as the seasons progress and people come in with their ideas and take pictures from websites and it has definitely been a major push for the DIY industry," he said.
"These TV shows definitely touch on what you can do inside, particularly with living spaces and bedrooms, where people want to spruce it up and make the area theirs whether its a rental or your own home.
"DIY's also turn out to be a cheaper and more homey alternative, by reusing what you have and refreshing it with a new coat of paint or using it in a different space."
Mr Beh said sticking to a plan, finding out what you do and do not need as well as seeking expert advice can ensure a successful DIY.
Erin Earth manager Karen Leary put the rise in popularity of DIY's down to more awareness of the environment.
"People are not trying to waste things and the awareness has grown about the important of trying to work in a more circular economy, rather than a wasteful one," Ms Leary said.
"What we've noticed in the community is a lot more interest in trying to reuse things rather than throw them away.
"We've found it hard to bring in people who are skilled to teach us how to up-cycle items and these tricky skills are becoming lost."
Ms Leary said money and cost are also factors driving the movement.
"It's much better for the environment to reuse rather than going out and buying it new," she said.
"People are finding more value in older pieces of furniture that were made with better quality and lasted longer, which has become a good incentive to DIY them."
The Daily Advertiser contacted Rivcrete, a business located at the proposed new Bunnings Warehouse site, but they declined to comment.
