Miter 10 stocks various brands

Mitre10 has 400 stores around the country and employee number are in the thousands.
Although at first glance, the name Mitre 10 may seem strange for a store name, but it comes from two things that inspired the original founders. One was the "Mitre joint"; a 45 degree joining of two parts. Reasonable, right? Hardware, joints, sounds plausible. The second inspiration for the name is a little more, well, Australian. It comes from the name of a pub in Melbourne with a huge beer garden, the Mitre Tavern. Mitre 10 is the perfect Australian mix of practical and larrikin.
