B&M Creates 100 Jobs with New Redruth Store
29 May 2015
B&M has continued its rapid expansion in the south with the creation of 100 jobs in Redruth.
Following on from the recent store openings in Charlton, Bristol and Towcester, the Redruth store marks B&M’s most southerly store yet.
The new Home Store & Garden Centre is situated at the former Homebase on Station Road, with the 100 jobs provided adding to the 80 which were created at the recent St Austell opening.
Carrying out the ribbon cutting was Chairman of Carn Brea Parish Council, Councillor Bickford, alongside B&M’s Local Hero; representatives from the local branch of the RNLI.
A B&M Local Hero is a group or individual, nominated by the store colleagues themselves, because of their positive impact on their local community, through their charity work or otherwise.
In addition to carrying out the opening ceremony, the RNLI also received £250 worth of B&M vouchers as a thank you for their work.
Chris Lethbridge, store manager at B&M Redruth 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 Redruth.
“We’re really proud to have created 100 jobs across the town this year and hope to keep playing our part in the local community.”
Chris added: “We are excited to have finally opened our doors and honoured to have had representatives from the RNLI in attendance to cut the ribbon, alongside the chairman of Carn Brea Parish council, officially marking the opening of our new store.”
Customers to the new premises can expect B&M’s high standard of quality with ranges of branded and own label products.
In addition, the Home Store & Garden Centre will also stock an extensive non-food section including toys, home, electrical and gardening ranges.
Over the course of the opening, children were entertained by their favourite Disney princesses, Frozen’s Elsa and Anna, and a face painter who was on hand to put smiles on faces young and old.
Today’s store opening is yet another in a long line of expansion for B&M, as the 450th store milestone comes hurtling ever closer.
