LIVERPOOL, UK, 2017-Nov-23 — /EPR Retail News/ — There was plenty of excitement in Skelton today as B&M opened up another store in the North Yorkshire region, radically increasing its number of employees.
The addition to B&M’s portfolio in the region comes as a huge boost to the local economy, creating 50 jobs for people from the area, taking their total to over 100 in North Yorkshire.
Visitors to the store, located on Pheasant Field Lane, 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 celebrations, B&M employees invited local charity, Tees Valley Wildlife Trust, to be their VIP for the day. Local Mayor, Cllr Karen King, was also in attendance.
The charity sets out to protect, manage and enhance the natural environment of Tees Valley. They also promote their programme of education and training, which includes education work with pupils in classroom activities in creating wildlife and growing areas in school grounds, and in supporting school visits to nature reserves and their Margrove Heritage Centre.
The foundation were handed £250 worth of vouchers to spend in-store as a thank you for their hard work in the community.
The store manager, Andrew Kidby, said: “The team from Tees Valley Wildlife Trust really stood out for us as they go the extra mile for local 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.”
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 and show customers their new B&M Skelton.”
