Dozens of Jobs Created with New B&M Store in Forestside
09 March 2018
Dozens of jobs were created in Belfast today as B&M opened up its new store in Forestside.
The addition to B&M's portfolio in the region comes as a huge boost to the local economy, creating more than 25 jobs for people from the area.
Visitors to the store, on Drumkeen 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, B&M employees invited local charity, Macmillan Cancer Support, to be their VIP for the day.
The team provide specialist care and support for people living in the local area with cancer; right from the moment they’re diagnosed, through their treatment and beyond, they’re a source of support.
Through their services they can help people affected by cancer with financial difficulties and advice about work, or just be a listening ear to talk to, whatever it is they’re there to help them.
They were handed £250 worth of vouchers to spend in-store as a thank you for their hard work in the community, and for opening the new store.
The store manager, Lana Kinnier, said: “The team from Macmillan Cancer Support really stood out for us as they go the extra mile for 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: “The new team have been working really hard to get the store ready for opening day and we can’t wait to get the doors open on Friday and show customers their new B&M Forestside.”
