VACANT: The former Timaru Herald building

A rumour that Bunnings Warehouse is moving into the old Timaru Herald site is just that - a rumour.

Building owner Keith Whitehead said yesterday no tenant had been signed for the Bank St building yet, but the businesses he was in discussion with did not include Bunnings.

"At this stage I genuinely don't know what will happen. I have three configurations for the site under consideration with three different industries."

Some of those options included Timaru businesses, while others were from out of town.

The Herald moved from its home of 28 years during the weekend and reopened for business at 19 Sophia St, in the former South Canterbury Finance building, yesterday.
