Bonanza for B&M at New Burscough store

09 April 2016

B&M has shown no signs of stopping its recent growth by opening yet another brand new store, this time in Burscough.

The new Bargain store is based on Ringtail Retail Park, and will offer the chance for local shoppers to experience B&M’s large range of branded and own label products.

The newly built building is a welcoming sight, and houses a wide choice of groceries, electricals & seasonal items.

A total of more than 50 new jobs have been created as a result of the opening, helping to provide a welcome boost for the village.

As part of B&M’s opening day celebrations, the store colleagues invited along a Local Hero to cut the ribbon at the store.

Legacy Rainbow House were the lucky recipients of this award, given to a local charity or organisation who have made an important contribution to their community.

The charity provides Conductive Education, a specialist service which aims to equip children with disabilities with independent life skills.

They aim to enhance the education, health and physical well-being of their service users as well as maximising their potential to enjoy the best quality of life possible.

As well as participating in the opening ceremony, representatives from Rainbow House received £250 worth of B&M vouchers as a thank you for taking part.

Also in attendance at the event was the Mayor of West Lancashire, Councillor Nikki Hennessy, who gratefully accepted an invitation to be a part of the celebrations.

Those who turned up on opening day were in for a treat, with Swizzles giveaways and a face painter all helping to ensure everybody went home happy.

Joe Byrne, store manager at B&M Burscough said: “We feel really positive about the creation of new jobs for local people and we hope customers are delighted with their new store.

“We have been really excited to get the doors open and welcome our new customers through the door.”
