About Mitre 10 MEGA Petone

Mitre 10 MEGA Petone, Upper Hutt and Porirua owners Martyn and Joanne Lockyer’s customer focus, combined with their inspirational leadership and ability to recognise the importance of having the right team of people working with them, has enabled the couple to continually develop their stores to meet the changing needs of their community along with current trends in building, landscaping & design.

Martyn and Joanne purchased a small hardware store some 29 years ago in Kawerau. At the time, Kawerau was a boomtown and the store quickly grew from its humble beginnings. When the Lower Hutt Mitre 10 franchise came up for sale in 1993, Martyn and Joanne decided the time was right for them to make a move from Kawerau and take their business to a new level.

In more recent times the Lockyers have built and developed New Zealand’s largest Mitre 10 MEGA Home Improvement Warehouse in Petone, followed by one in Upper Hutt and recently our newest addition Mitre 10 MEGA Porirua.

As the stores have got bigger Martyn hasn’t been able to do everything himself so he found great people to help run them. It is these people he says are the key to our success, looking after and satisfying their customer’s needs. “It’s the team you work with – no one person can do everything on their own”, Martyn says. “I have been extremely lucky to have a great team who share in my vision, who have accepted whole heartily that, for us to succeed, we must maintain customer satisfaction”.
