B&M Celebrates Nottingham Store Opening with Sue Ryder Charity
12 September 2015
A local charity became B&M’s special guests for the day as the retailer opened its latest store in Nottingham on Saturday.
The brand new Home Store at the Victoria Retail Park, Netherfield has created 60 jobs for local people.
And to help celebrate another landmark day for one of Britain’s fastest growing retailers, representatives from the Sue Ryder charity were invited to officially open the store.
The nationwide charity provides hospice and neurological care for people with life-limiting illnesses, and members from the Nottingham branch we’re chosen by store staff to be part of the big day.
Representatives were joined by Gedling Mayor Councillor Meredith Lawrence and Mayoress Mrs Wendy Lawrence.
The charity received £250 worth of B&M vouchers as a thank you for cutting the ribbon at the new store.
Customers can expect a wide variety of branded and own label products including groceries and toiletries as well as an extensive non-food section including toys, home, electrical and seasonal ranges.
Mark Sharpe, store manager at the new Nottingham store said: “B&M is committed to recruiting from the local area and I am delighted we’ve found a great team from in and around Nottingham.
“We’re really proud to have created 60 jobs this year and we’re pleased to be playing our part in the local community.
“We’re also honoured to have representatives from Sue Ryder cutting the ribbon to officially mark the opening of our new store”.
The new Home Store at Victoria Retail Park becomes the fourth B&M in the Nottingham area, with out of town stores at Ladybay and Madford Retail Parks, as well as the Bargains store in Beeston.
