60 Jobs Created with New B&M Store in Bury St Edmunds
14 April 2018
B&M continued its expansion this morning by setting up shop in Bury St Edmunds, creating dozens of jobs.
The addition to B&M's portfolio in the region comes as a huge boost to the local economy, creating 60 jobs for people from the area.
Visitors to the store on Western Way will be able to browse a wide range of branded and own label goods, including toys, groceries, health & beauty and pet ranges.
As part of the opening celebrations, B&M employees invited local charity, St Nicholas Hospice Care, to be their VIP for the day. Local Mayor, Cllr Terry Clements, and his wife, Vivian, were also in attendance.
The team provide help, advice and support to people who are living with long-term and life-threatening illnesses in West Suffolk and Thetford. Their services are not just for patients, but for their family and friends too.
They include everything from specialist medical care to bereavement support and practical help.
They were handed £250 worth of vouchers to spend in-store as a thank you for their hard work in the community, and for opening the new store.
The store manager, Lewis Wilding, said: “The team from St Nicholas Hospice Care really stood out for us as they go the extra mile for the local 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.”
He also commented: “The new team have been working really hard to get the store ready for opening day, we can’t wait to get the doors open on Saturday and show customers their brand new B&M Western Way.”
