Chippenham Welcomes New B&M Store
22 September 2018
Customers in Chippenham 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 more than 70 jobs for people from the area.
Visitors to the store on Hathaway Retail Park 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 Springboard were invited along as their VIP guests for the day, as well as the Chairman of East Riding, Cllr Andy Phillips, and Mayoress Nina Phillips.
The charity provides high quality care, education and activities for young children with additional needs. They aim to provide a lively and safe environment for the children and their families.
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, Mike Wilkes, said: “The team from Springboard 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: “Our new colleagues have been working really hard to get the store ready for opening day, so we're delighted to get the doors open and show customers their brand new B&M.”
