Local Hero Opens New B&M Store In Sheffield
03 August 2014
B&M has created another 80 jobs in Sheffield after opening a new store in the city. The finishing touches were made to the 23,000 sq ft store on the Drakehouse Retail Park which opened on Friday 25th July and a deserving member of the community had the chance to be a VIP for the morning.
The search was on for a local hero to open the new B&M store in Sheffield; heroes were nominated by friends, family or work colleagues and could have been someone who makes life better for people in the area, works hard for a particular cause or is renowned for their charity work.
Karena Hodgson B&M’s Store Manager at Sheffield Drakehouse said: “We wanted a true VIP to officially open our new store and what better way than to ask customers to nominate those who have made a real difference to people’s lives in and around Sheffield”.
We were not judging by age or the type of support, we just wanted someone who goes that extra mile and who we could give something back to for a change”.
The Winner was Steve Cowens who runs local charity music festivals, which benefit the local community.
The worthy winner also received £250 worth of vouchers to spend in store.
