B&M Set for Success in Scunthorpe with Third Store
13 June 2015
B&M was proud to mark the opening of its third store in the Scunthorpe region today, with the help of a local charity.
Based in the North Lincolnshire Retail Park, the new B&M Bargains Store in Gunness has created 40 more jobs in the Scunthorpe community.
Customers at the brand new shop will be able to browse B&M’s collection of quality own label products as well as an extensive selection of branded goods, including groceries, toiletries and seasonal items.
In attendance at the opening were representatives from Lindsay Lodge Hospice, who were chosen by store colleagues as B&M’s Local Hero.
This award is given to an individual or organisation who has made an important impact on the local community – through charity work or otherwise
In addition to opening the store, the hospice also received £250 worth of B&M vouchers as a thank you for the contribution they had made to the community.
Lindsay Lodge Hospice is a day care unit which provides specialised nursing and medical care for up to 14 patients daily, with around 70 patients on their register at any one time.
All services to patients living with a life-limiting illness and their families are provided free of charge.
During the day, patients can take advantage of a range of therapies which include massage, physiotherapy and aromatherapy.
Hospice representatives also extended their helping hands to the first lucky B&M shoppers by carrying out bag packing to raise funds for their work.
Also present to help cut the ribbon were Deputy Mayor, Councillor Trevor Foster, and Mayoress, Mrs Angela Foster.
Speaking to the Scunthorpe Telegraph, store manager Debbie Hall said: “I am confident that we will deliver high standards and we want to deliver good services.
“The fact that we have opened a third store in Scunthorpe on this retail park is great.
“It is amazing that we can have three stores open in Scunthorpe and I am sure B&M will contribute well to the customers.”
Kids young and old were treated to the work of a face painter who spent the day creating happy faces all day long.
B&M is now moving ever closer to its 450th store, with its expansion showing no signs of slowing down
