B&M Scores with Brand New Rugby Store
03 May 2017
Shoppers in Rugby were delighted to finally step foot inside their new B&M Bargains Store.
Based on Junction One Retail Park, the newly developed store will allow locals to experience the variety retailer’s great selection of branded and own label products.
With everything from toys and homewares to food and drink, there’s plenty of items for visitors to the store to browse.
More than 50 jobs have been created as a result of the new store, which comes as a welcome boost to the local economy.
As part of B&M’s Local Hero campaign, given to a local charity or individual who’ve made an important contribution to their community, store colleagues invited along the Hope4 charity to open the store.
They aim to relieve poverty among the homeless and badly-housed people in Rugby, with hope that their work can help prevent homelessness in the area.
They run the Hope Centre for those who have been referred to the charity, where the users have access to professional help and are provided with hot food and drinks.
In addition to opening the new store, the charity also received £250 worth of B&M vouchers as a thank you for taking part and for all their hard work.
Also attending the store opening was the Mayor of Rugby, Councillor Sally Bragg, who gratefully accepted an invitation to attend.
Paul Harris, store manager at B&M Newbold, said: “The team from Hope4 really stood out for us as they go the extra mile for the homeless and less fortunate people in the community, we wanted to give them some VIP treatment as a thank you for all the hard work they do.
“We hope that our donation can help them to continue the great work they do.”
He also commented: “The new team have been working really hard to get the store ready for opening day and we couldn’t wait to get the doors open and show customers their new B&M Rugby.”
The opening day fun will continue beyond opening day, with a face painter making an appearance in store on Saturday to help turn shoppers into their favourite superheroes, animals and much more!
