B&M Relaunches Eagerly Awaited Westwood Home Store
27 April 2017
Shoppers in Belfast had cause to celebrate after the eagerly awaited re-launch of B&M’s Westwood Shopping centre store.
The shopping centre has been completely revamped over the course of the past year, with the brand new B&M Home Store boasting a whole host of new items and a much more extensive shopping experience.
Floor space in the store has increased by 45%, ensuring shoppers will have even more of B&M’s branded and own label products to browse.
Visitors to the store will be able to purchase from a wide range of household goods, including food & drink, pet products and toys – as well as a large selection of homewares, furniture and decorating items.
As a result of the increased size, a total of 30 additional colleagues have been taken on, combined with the current 28 who were employed in the old store.
B&M also holds the accolade of being the first retailer to open on the new, purpose built development – as they continue to stake their claim as one of the fastest growing retailers in the UK.
Store colleagues invited along Cynthia Cherry, the Northern Ireland Regional Co-ordinator for Macmillan Cancer Care, to be their Local Hero for the day, an award given to an organisation or individual who’ve made an important contribution to their community.
Alongside cutting the ribbon to open the new store, she also received £250 worth of B&M vouchers to donate towards the charity’s efforts, as a thank you for taking part in the opening ceremony.
Stuart Walker, store manager at B&M Westwood, said: “We’ve been feeling really positive about the creation of new jobs for local people and we hope customers are delighted with their new and improved store.
“We have all been excited to get the doors open and welcome our customers through the doors.”
