Last month, the chain’s chief operating officer Simon McDowell revealed in a statement to Daily Mail Australia that Bunnings was ‘really excited’ for barbeques to return to NSW stores from Saturday, October 16, after Covid-19 lockdown restrictions were eased.

‘We know how much our customers have missed the weekend tradition, and we are really pleased local community groups will be able to get back behind the BBQs to raise funds,’ Mr McDowell said.

The weekend tradition has been progressively making its long-awaited comeback to stores throughout NSW from October 16 (Pictured: A young shopper enjoying a trademark snag on a roll)

The weekend tradition has been progressively making its long-awaited comeback to stores throughout the state over the last few weeks as community groups are booked into weekend slots by the stores’ team.

The footage captured by Mr Wijinarko showed the trademark green tent set up from afar towards the end of the store’s outdoor car park with a crowd gathered around the area.

One innovative Bunnings enthusiast suggested that the hardware giant should install ‘sausage sizzle holders’ on their trolleys.

In contrast, another sausage sizzle lover was outraged over the bread served at the store’s tent.

‘What Bunnings sausage sizzle has hot dog rolls instead of a piece of bread,’ they wrote.

Shoppers have long enjoyed the value for money sausage and drink deal on weekends.

A snag on white bread or a roll sets you back just $2.50, with an accompanying soft drink even better value at $1.50.
