Boom for Bury as Relocated B&M Opens its Doors
Shoppers in Bury were able to celebrate on Saturday after B&M cut the ribbon on the town’s re-located B&M store.
The Mill Gate Shopping Centre store is based just over the road from the previous Bury store offering a bigger and better experience for shop visitors.
The former BHS has undergone a comprehensive internal and external refurbishment, creating 40 jobs for local people in the process.
Visitors to the new Home Store can expect to find the retailer’s wide range of branded and own label products, including toys, food & drink and health & beauty ranges.
As part of B&M’s Local Hero initiative, representatives from Creative Support were invited to take part in the opening day’s celebrations.
A B&M Local Hero is an individual or organisation who have made an important contribution to their local community, and is chosen by store colleagues.
The team at Creative Support provide social care services to people with learning disabilities, mental health issues and other needs.
To support their users, they offer a range of services to meet their differing needs, including community and home support, residential care and much more.
In addition to opening the new store, the representatives also received £250 worth of B&M vouchers as a thank you for taking part and for all their hard work in the local community.
Also in attendance at the store opening was the Mayor of Bury, Councillor Mike Connolly, who gratefully accepted an invitation to attend.
Stuart Munro, store manager at B&M Bury, said: “The team from Creative Support really stood out for us as they go the extra mile for 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.”
Shopping Centre Manager, Marie Gribben, said: “B&M is a major high street retailer and its arrival demonstrates great confidence in the shopping centre.
“The new store will add variety to our strong retail mix of fashion, lifestyle and leisure.”
