Young Local Hero Re-opens B&M Pontypridd

19 May 2016

A young B&M Local Hero helped make Pontypridd’s B&M store re-opening a perfect day.

The B&M Bargains store, located in the busy town centre at 92 Taff Street, was formally re-opened by B&M Local Hero, Lochlan Olden on Thursday.

The award is given to an individual or organisation which has made an important contribution to their local community.

8-year-old Lochlan tragically lost his leg after being hit by a quad bike driver, changing the boy’s young life.

The sport-loving youngster is now raising money for a bionic leg, in the hope that he will be able to fulfil the sporting life he once dreamed of.

In addition to cutting the ribbon, Lochlan also received £250 worth of B&M vouchers as a thank you for opening the store.

Locals will once again be able to browse the store’s wide range of branded and own label goods, including groceries, toys and electrical products.

The expanded store will hold ever more ranges than ever before, ensuring that shoppers will be able to find everything they need.

Also making an appearance at the opening day was Mayor of Pontypridd, Councillor Jayne Brencher, who helped celebrate the opening alongside Lochlan.

The expansion of B&M Pontypridd signals the intent of the variety retailer to not only create new stores, but to ensure its existing stores give shoppers the best possible experience.
