The Last Bunnings Warehouse Store in Michigan is Preparing to Close

The last Bunnings Warehouse store in Michigan is preparing to close. The chain letter is being circulated as a reminder to shoppers that they must act now to avoid losing the essential outlet. But is the store really closing? What will be the next move? And how do you know if your local catalogue Bunnings Warehouse is heading that way? Read on to learn more. Here are some things to keep in mind.

The final Bunnings Warehouse store in Michigan is set to close this year, which is sad news for its local community. While many people still love shopping at Bunnings, they are facing a difficult decision. The company has decided to consolidate the remaining stores in Michigan, but that doesn't mean the last Bunnings in your hometown will close. It's just that the last store in Michigan is the first one to close.

This news comes as a complete shock to many customers. Thousands of customers were gathered outside the last Bunnings store in Michigan and the cars spilled onto the street. Earlier this week, Bunnings had caved in to media pressure and will only let tradespeople into the stores. Meanwhile, other hardware stores, garden centres, office supply chains, and pet supply chains will have to close on Monday. In 12 local government areas, the chain has only made click and collect services available.



The Sierra Leone Web was launched in February 1996, the first niche news service on the internet. It was also the first website to archive news.

In 1996, the "World Wide Web" was just beginning to emerge from the era of gray backgrounds, and "Gopher" was still a common way of presenting information online. Popular software included Netscape 1.0 and "Internet in a Box." Computer stores sold books teaching web design in ten easy lessons and the "Internet Yellow Pages." Commercial news websites were still years away.

From 1991 to 2002, Sierra Leone was embroiled in a brutal civil conflict which saw tens of thousands of people killed and thousands more mutilated. Sierra Leone's plight was largely unreported in the international press and attracted little notice in the international community. Stories reported by Sierra Leonean stringers mostly died an electronic death on wire services and never reached the public.

The Sierra Leone Web changed that, and played its part in Sierra Leone's history.

Today the war is over and the country is once again safe, if not yet as prosperous as we hope it may become. In 2014 and 2015 the Ebola crisis dealt a severe blow to the economy.

The Sierra Leone Web no longer reports news, but other news sources are now available. The website continues to be active, with many resources reflecting life in Sierra Leone today, and in history.

On 28 April 2014 Sierra Leone Web founder Peter Andersen was made a Member of the Order of the Rokel by President Koroma for "distinguished service to the State particularly in the field of Communication and the establishment of the Sierra Leone website."
