Hartlepool, United Kingdom, 2017-Apr-29 — /EPR Retail News/ — Shoppers in Congleton celebrated the opening of a new B&M store which opened in the town on Wednesday.
Located at Congleton Retail Park, Viking Way, the new Bargains Store is B&M’s second in the town and has made more great bargains available to even more shoppers in Congleton.
One of the fastest growing retailers in the UK, B&M has taken over the site of the old Poundland Clearance store and following an extensive refurbishment programme the variety retailer is pleased to announce that more than 50 jobs have been created as a result.
Visitors to the store will be able to browse a large range of branded and own label products, including toys, food & drink, pet items and homewares.
Shoppers will also have access to extensive DIY, decorating and furniture ranges.
Congleton Mayor, Cllr David Brown was one of the store’s special guests on Wednesday morning, cutting the ribbon to officially declare the store ‘open’.
And to mark the occasion further, store staff nominated a local charity to take part in the store opening as B&M’s VIP guest.
Friends for Leisure was nominated in recognition of the role it plays in the local community, arranging fun and social activities for disabled children and young people in Cheshire.
As a thank you for taking part the organisation received £250 worth of B&M vouchers.
B&M Congleton’s new store manager, Elaine Dale, said: “The team from Friends for Leisure really stood out for us as they go the extra mile for the community, we wanted to give them some VIP treatment as a thank you for all the hard work they do.
“We hope that our donation can help them to continue the great work they do.”
She also commented: “The new team have been working really hard to get the store ready for opening day and we can’t wait to get the doors open on Wednesday and show customers their new B&M Congleton.”
