Our Story

In 1990 Kevin and Maria King opened a Value Rite Hardware store at the top of Ardmore Street, Wanaka. By 1992 the store had joined True Value (US company) and in 1995 the store rebranded as Mitre 10 Wanaka. The business grew as a range of building materials were added to the basement of the building and a garden extension. It soon became one of the country’s largest home solution stores. In 2000 the store was purchased by two Dunedin brothers, Martin and Alan Dippie. In 2001 a trade yard and outdoor garden were added before the store shifted to its current position in the Anderson Heights Business Park.

Mitre 10 Wanaka has a very loyal customer base and we pride ourselves in our passionate involvement in the local community. General Manager Mark Watson has been with the company since 2000, steering the store through many transformations to become the largest building, home improvement and rural supply store in the region. During this time, Mark and his team have been nominated for 7 Mitre 10 Store of the Year awards with 3 wins, and 3 Trade Store of the Year nominations, with 2 wins.

Here to Help

Friendly locals are on hand to give great advice, however we understand no one customer is the same and if you would prefer taking away information to digest at home or simply guiding yourself through the store for a particular project, don't forget to take advantage of our great Project Shopping Lists and How-to Guides.
These print outs cover everything from growing a particular plant to building a deck and patching a hole in an internal wall, with easy to follow instructions/diagrams/pictures and simple lists to make sure you know everything you need in the one visit. You will find them in the relevant departments or on a stand at the Trade desk or Kitchen and Plumbing desk.
