B&M Grows with 4th Doncaster Store
21 April 2016
A new B&M store in Doncaster has provided a welcome boost to the local economy.
The variety retailer opened its latest store in Armthorpe on Thursday, creating more than 35 jobs for local people.
Located on Church Street, B&M has opened its doors on the site of the former Co-op store following a comprehensive refurbishment programme.
The new Bargains Store follows hot on the heels of recent store openings on Danum Retail Park and Friarsgate, bringing the total number of jobs created by B&M in the county to more than 110 in the last couple of years.
The town’s Mayor Paul Rayand was welcomed by staff to officially open the store, while Ann Ostle representing local charity Thorne Family Support Group also took part in the opening ceremony.
As a thank you for cutting the ribbon on the new store, Mrs Ostle received £250 worth of B&M vouchers to help support the charity’s cause.
Blake Fullerton, store manager for B&M Armthorpe, said: “We’re feeling really positive about the creation of new jobs for local people and we hope customers are going to be delighted with their new store.
“We are all really excited to get the doors open and welcome our new customers.”
Hundreds of shoppers passed through the doors on opening day, keen to make the most of B&M’s various product ranges, from toys and DIY to homeware and grocery.
