Help on Hand as B&M Opens New Norwich Store
15 April 2015
B&M joined forces with Help for Heroes to cut the ribbon on a new B&M Bargains store in Norwich.
The new Carrow Road store will provide 55 jobs, as well as providing local people with B&M’s variety and quality.
Based at the former Currys/PC World in Riverside Retail Park, the new Bargains store continues B&M’s rise as one of the UK's fastest growing retailers.
Representatives from the charity carried out the ribbon cutting, alongside Lord Mayor, Councillor Judith Lubbock.
Carole Groves, East of England regional manager of Help for Heroes spoke of her “delight that B&M employees have chosen to support Help for Heroes.”
Help for Heroes received £250 worth of B&M vouchers thanks to B&M’s Local Hero award, given to a local person or cause who make a difference in the community.
The charity offers comprehensive support to those who have suffered life-changing injuries and illnesses in the line of duty.
This is provided through grants to individuals, capital build projects and four Recovery Centres across the UK which offer support for life.
Stuart Goodworth, store manager at B&M Norwich Carrow Road said: “B&M is committed to recruiting from the local area and I am delighted we’ve found a great team from in and around Norwich."
“We’re really proud to have created another 55 jobs across Norwich this year and continuing to play our part in the local community.”
Mr Goodworth added: “We are delighted to open our doors and honoured to have representatives from Help for Heroes alongside the mayor cutting the ribbon to officially mark the opening of our new store.”
