MACKAY business owner Kerry Woodman has added another Mitre 10 to his Woodman's umbrella, this located at the Marian Town Centre.

The store, which has been opened since June 2, is 1200 square metres and houses 16,000 products.

Michael and Carlene from popular television series The Block and Reno Rumble were onsite today for the official opening of the store.

Mr Woodman said the Marian store had been three years in planning so it was exciting to make it a reality.

There was a jumping castle, face painting, free popcorn and a sausage sizzle.

Mr Woodman said the sausage sizzle would be a regular occurrence and he was working with community groups and organisations.

Those who popped in today were able to chat with Michael and Carlene, who shared their experiences about the televisions series as well as what they learned about renovating.
