B&M Brings Bargains to Burnage
28 July 2016
B&M’s growth in Manchester continued on Thursday with the opening of its latest store.
Residents of Burnage, south Manchester celebrated the creation of 80 new jobs as a result of the new store which is located on Kingsway, at the site of the former B&Q.
The brand new Home Store & Garden Centre will offer shoppers B&M’s great value prices on branded and own-label goods from homeware, grocery and electrical ranges as well as an extensive gardening selection.
To help celebrate the opening, Lord Mayor Councillor Carl Austin-Behan was present to cut the ribbon, along with representatives from Francis House Children’s Hospice.
Providing appropriate care for children and young people across Manchester, Francis House helps support sufferers and families through quality of care and comfort.
The hospice was chosen by store staff as their named charity who received £250 worth of B&M vouchers as a thank you for taking part in the store opening.
Tracy Fleming, store manager at B&M Burnage said: “The team from Francis House 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.”
Mrs Fleming also expressed her delight at finally getting the doors open, after months of preparation. She said, “We’re really excited to open in Burnage.
“We’ve got a great team of new colleagues on board and we hope that customers are going to be delighted with the new store.”
The store will also boast an extensive DIY, decorating and furniture range, as well as our stocking everything from toys and games to giftware and health and beauty and pets.
