50 Jobs Created in Leighton Buzzard with Opening of New B&M Store

06 February 2019

The long-awaited brand new B&M store in Leighton Buzzard was officially opened this morning, much to the joy of local customers.

More than 50 jobs were created at the store, which can be found on Grovebury Retail Park.

A wide range of branded products are available to purchase, including toys, food & drink, homeware, pet products, health & beauty and seasonal.

As part of the opening day process, colleagues nominated local charity, Kids Out, to be given some VIP treatment. They, alongside the Deputy Mayor, Cllr Dave Bowater, helped unveil the new store.

The charity aims to give local disadvantaged children positive and fun experiences to help them create a better future for themselves. They do this through a variety of services such as Fun Days, a Toy Box service and much more.

As a thank you for all of the hard work they do in the community, and for helping to open the new B&M store, the charity were handed £250 worth of vouchers to spend in-store.

The store manager, Paula Turney, said: “The team from Kids Out really stood out for us as they go the extra mile for local disadvantaged children in 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.”
