"Our vision is by offering a broad range of quality products at very low prices and by continually exciting our customers with fantastic bargains, enhanced by superb retail standards, to provide a pleasurable shopping experience which prompts customers to return again and again to a B&M Store."
B&M prides itself on selling strong brands albeit at low margins. Unlike other discounters, we focus on the key brands rather than own label or tertiary brand products.
We have two formats: B&M Bargains and B&M Homestore. The former has between 8,000 and 10,000 sq ft of sales area. The extremely competitive offering attracts a high footfall, stores achieving 10,000 transactions in an average week, peaking at nearly 30,000 per week. This footfall is one of the highest enjoyed by any UK retailer. It demonstrates the crowd pleasing offer we bring to any retail destination.
Our B&M Homestore format has a Bulky Goods bias, and can trade up to 35,000 sqft in good visibility Out of Town locations. Many Homestores also have a Garden Centre attached. These Homestores primarily sell Paint, Wallpaper, Furniture, Home Textiles, Furnishings, Wall Decor, Garden & Leisure products.
We put a huge effort into ensuring our retail standards are the highest possible. We believe our stores should be clean, well lit, attractively merchandised and easy to shop. Our store fixturing is exactly the same used by the major UK retailers and supermarkets. We are proud of our bright modern shopfronts and typically use good quality decorative vinyl floors, suspended ceilings and recessed lighting to provide our shoppers with a pleasant environment. With a large national estate we have a dedicated property care department that ensures we look after your asset as if it was our own.
B&M is a privately owned company, in large part owned by its management. The management team have years of experience in product sourcing for blue chip retailers like Marks & Spencers, Tesco and Asda.
