Hartlepool, United Kingdom, 2017-Oct-06 — /EPR Retail News/ — B&M continued its growth today (04 October 2017) as a new store was opened on Abbey Retail Park in Daventry.
The latest addition to B&M’s portfolio in the region comes as a huge boost to the local economy, creating 45 jobs for people from the area.
As part of the opening day celebrations, B&M colleagues invited local charity, Daventry Volunteers Centre, to be their VIP for the day, while local Mayor Councillor Lynne Taylor, was also in attendance.
The charity has been the heart of volunteering in Daventry for the last 25 years. They recruit volunteers for local charities and not-for-profit organisations, and also support local projects that help deliver better services to local people. These include the New St Café Project and Happy at Home Partnership.
They received £250 worth of B&M vouchers as a thank you for taking part and for all of their hard work in the local community.
The store manager, Sanjay Kakab, said: “The team from Daventry Volunteers Centre really stood out for us as they go the extra mile for the 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 next Wednesday and show customers their new B&M Daventry.”
