07 December 2018
The long-awaited brand new B&M store in Leicester was officially opened this morning, much to the joy of local customers.
More than 40 jobs were created at the store, which can be found in Haymarket Shopping Centre.
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, Focus Children's Charity, to be given some VIP treatment. They, alongside the Mayor, Cllr Ross Grant, helped unveil the new store.
The charity works with a diverse range of young people, through volunteering and community activity develop the skills and attributes that they need to be successful in their lives.
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, Ryan Beniston, said: “The team from Focus 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.”
