Hartlepool, United Kingdom, 2017-Aug-21 — /EPR Retail News/ — There was a lot of excitement in Walsall today (17 August 2017) as a new B&M Bargains Store was opened.
The latest addition to B&M’s portfolio in the region comes as a huge boost to the local economy thanks to the creation of more than 35 jobs.
It follows hot on the heels of a store opening in Aldridge, creating more than 130 jobs in the county.
Visitors to the store, opposite Primark in the town centre, will be able to browse a wide range of branded and own label goods, including toys, groceries, health & beauty and pet ranges.
As part of the opening day celebrations, B&M colleagues invited local charity Walsall Carers’ Centre to be their VIP for the day.
The team support local carers who look after their ill loved ones which means they don’t get much time for themselves. The centre is a place for the carers to go, where they have a ‘listening ear’ and several services on offer to make sure they’re receiving the help they need.
The charity received £250 worth of B&M vouchers as a thank you for taking part, while Mayor Marco Longhi, and his wife, Andrea, were also in attendance.
The store manager, Devon Beckett, said: “The team from Walsall Carers’ Centre really stood out for us as they go the extra mile for local people, 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.”
He 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 Thursday and show customers their new B&M Walsall.”
