As an every weekend Bunnings shopper I feel the need to share my experiences. Bunnings allows dogs on leads in their stores, I have seen dogs defecating in the aisles with owners wiping the mess but leaving smears on the floor, seen dogs climbing on the patio furniture displays and sniffing at the food displays at the cafe area.
I have mentioned this to Bunnings management and have been told that this is now their national policy.
My response as a shopper will be to answer with my feet and rather use the competition where there is a lesser health risk

Buying by tender: Did you write a letter?

Kylie Klein Nixon Reporter from Homed

Hi folks,
My colleague Jo is writing a story about buying by tender, specifically, the new trend of writing letters to the vendor to explain why they should pick your offer over all the rest.
As the market gets harder and harder to break into, we've been hearing more and more about people trying to make a personal connection with vendors to give their tender offers the edge. We've heard folks will include personal details about their family, why the love the house and what their plans for the property are.
Jo would love to talk to anyone who's written a letter like this to accompany a tender - perhaps it's you, perhaps a relative or friend - or from vendors who've received letters like this, accompanying a tender.
Perhaps you asked for such letters?
We'd love to hear more about that experience for you and how it shaped the way the sale went.
You can reach out to jo here (she'll be joining the Neighbourly neighbourhood soon!) or via our email: homed@stuff.co.nz.
Looking forward to hearing your stories.
