New use for property
The former Brights Mitre 10 timber and hardware property in Paremata has been sold to the operator of Porirua’s Storage Solutions for more than $1.5 million. The store closed at the end of last year, after 40 years.
More than 2000 square metres of buildings on the site have been leased for 18 months.
Tony Baumann of Storage Solutions, which has facilities in Tawa and Porirua, said it would be his third outlet.
About half the property would be made available for boat and motorhome storage.
The old hardware store section of the site, measuring about 500 square metres, has become a dance studio.
