Brand New B&M store in Birtley Officially Opens
24 October 2018
Customers in Birtley were smiling this morning as a brand new B&M store opened in town.
The addition to B&M's portfolio in the region comes as a huge boost to the local economy, creating 21 jobs for people from the area, as well as keeping 7 who previously worked for Co-Op.
Visitors to the store on Durham Road 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, local charity The Birtley Hub were invited along as their VIP guests for the day, as well as the the Mayor, Cllr Jill Green.
The Hub is a resource centre that provides help to those in the local community need it. They offer information about local services and other organisations such as food banks, as well as help with job searching and also arrange social events, trips and activities to keep local people occupied.
In addition to opening the new store, the representatives also received £250 worth of B&M vouchers as a thank you for taking part and for all their hard work in the local area.
The store manager, Lorraine Plaice, said: “The team from The Birtley Hub 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.”
She also commented: “Our new colleagues have been working really hard to get the store ready for opening day, we can’t wait to get the doors open on Wednesday and show customers their brand new B&M.”
