B&M Officially Opens Store in Newmarket's The Guineas Shopping Centre
16 March 2019
The long-awaited brand new B&M store in Newmarket was officially opened this morning, much to the joy of local customers.
Over 40 jobs were created at the store, which can be found in The Guineas Shopping Centre. It follows hot on the heels of store openings in Lowestoft and Bury St Edmonds, taking the total number of new jobs at B&M in the county to more than 120.
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, Newmarket Town FC, to be given some VIP treatment. They, alongside the Lord Mayor, Cllr Rachel Hood, helped unveil the new store.
The club highlights the values of teamwork and building relationships through sport. As well as their first team they have also have a youth team to encourage young children in the local community to take part and find fun in sport.
In addition to helping to open the new store, the club were given £250 worth of vouchers to spend.
The store manager, Aaron O’Neill, said: “The team from Newmarket FC really stood out for us as they go the extra mile for local children in the community, so 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: “Our new colleagues have worked really hard to get the store ready for opening day, and we can’t wait to show customers their brand new B&M.”
