B&M Opens Relocated Tyldesley Bargains Store

24 June 2016

Shoppers in Tyldesley were celebrating on Friday at the unveiling of the newest store in the town.

The new B&M Bargains store is based at the former Morrison’s on Shuttle Street – and will replace the town’s old store at The Square which closed on Saturday 18th June.

A total of 40 jobs have been created as a result of the new store opening, a boost for the local economy.

The new Tyldesley store follows hot on the heels of the recent store opening in Swinton, which had created 60 jobs – bringing the number of jobs created by the retailer in the area in recent months to 100.

Shoppers at the store will be able to browse the variety retailer’s vast selection of branded and own-label products, including groceries, home furnishings and household items.

The children’s charity ChildFlight were invited to cut the ribbon as B&M’s Local Hero for the day, given to a charity or individuals who have made an important contribution to their society.

7 year old Morgan Kay Wright was delighted to be tasked with cutting the ribbon, on behalf of the charity.

ChildFlight provide flights and holidays for sick and deserving children, including children who require medical treatment abroad or who have missed out on childhood experiences, due to illness.

Based at Manchester Airport, the charity has representatives and strong fund raising links in the areas of Manchester, Blackpool, Wirral and the North West of England.

Alongside opening the new store, the charity also received £250 worth of B&M vouchers as a thank you for taking part in the opening day celebrations.

The fun doesn’t stop on opening day, as a face painter will be making an appearance on Saturday to ensure there’s fun to be had by everyone.

The variety retailer has continued to open stores on a weekly basis, with two store openings this week and one store opening scheduled for next week in Clevedon.
