24 May 2019
Customers in Whitby were delighted this morning following the unveiling of their brand new B&M Store.
Over 65 people from the local area have been employed at the store, which can be found on Stainsacre Lane.
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, St Catherine's Hospice, to be given some VIP treatment. They helped unveil the new store alongside the Lord Mayor, Cllr Rebecca Pearson.
The team provide specialist palliative care to patients who have highly complex needs. They offer a wide range of services to help patients and their families learn to live with incurable, progressive illnesses.
In addition to helping to open the new store, the charity were given £250 worth of vouchers to spend.
The store manager, Mike Hayhurst, said: “The team from St Catherine’s Hospice really stood out for us as they go the extra mile for local people in the community, so 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, and we can’t wait to show customers their brand new B&M.”
