Tradies In Training

As the day of bad dad jokes approaches, Porters Mitre 10 is celebrating amazing dads and their little helpers. From tackling big DIY projects like building a cubbyhouse to those weekends wandering through Porters with your youngest in tow, bombarding you with "what's that?" a gazillion times – a father figure holds a special place in all our lives.

But let's face it, Father's Day isn't just about applauding our dads for their lightbulb-changing skills and heroic spider rescues; it’s about appreciating all that our fathers do for us and creating memories to cherish for years to come. Porters Mitre 10 has been a big part of many local families' memories for more than 140 years, from play dates at our playground to tasty cupcakes at Charlies Café. This year, we're not only celebrating those memories – we’re helping our community to make new ones.

For every customer who spends over $50 in-store, we're gifting you an exclusive 'tradie in training' t-shirt. These tee-rrific shirts are available in children's sizes ranging from one to sixteen.  Whether you're on the hunt for that perfect Father’s Day gift or treating yourself to something special, make sure to come in store before Friday 1st of September to get your hands on this adorable tradie t-shirt.

The fun doesn’t stop there! We want to see those adorable little tradies in action. Share a photo of your little one in our ‘tradie in training’ t-shirt and tag us @Porterscando on Facebook to enter our Father’s Day competition to win a YETI Tundra valued at $649.99.

At Porters Mitre 10, we're more than just a place for tools and supplies; we're a part of your family's journey. Our goal is to help you transform dreams into reality, one project at a time. So, let's celebrate the memories we've built together – share your photo and join us in celebrating the moments that make us more than just a hardware store, but a part of the community.
