Covid­19 has put the pres­sure on builders and staff at the new

$25 mil­lion Mitre 10 Mega store in Wanaka to meet a tight com­ple­tion dead­line.

How­ever, man­ager Mark Wat­son (left) is con­fi­dent the store will be ready to open at

8am on Novem­ber 21.

The 9000sq m store is coowned by Al­lan Dip­pie (right) and his brother Martin.

It will have the same range as the Dunedin Mitre 10 Mega store.

So­lar pan­els on the build­ing were al­ready prov­ing their worth, and Mr Dip­pie ex­pected the build­ing would, in ef­fect, be off­grid for six months a year.

The store will em­ploy 120 staff, an in­crease of 20 on the pre­sent Mitre 10 store. Also pic­tured is re­tail and ex­pe­ri­ence man­ager Emma Levy.
