The new Bunnings Warehouse in Warragul is now set for a mid-year opening.
The development at the corner of Queen St and Hazel Drive has been a hive of activity with as many as 150 workers on site daily.
It will include Bunnings, a large Kmart store, and Kmart tyre and auto and other retail outlets.
When the go-ahead was given by Baw Baw Shire Council early last year construction costs were estimated at $25 million with fit-outs of the stores to cost an additional estimated $30 million.
Planning took-off after the State Government rezoned the land from bulky goods to retail uses.
About 630 customer car parks will be provided.
