The hardware monopoly


Bunnings is fighting it out with the new Woolworths’ Masters stores for the big box hardware dollar. But, as this banner – hung in the window of a small hardware shop in Box Hill – shows, not everyone is taking this lying down.








Apparently the Mandarin text also says ‘Hardware Monopoly’. So maybe it is just wishful thinking by the store’s owner.
