Hessle Re-Opens B&M Bargains Store
29 March 2018
B&M Hessle re-opened its doors today after expansion work was finally completed.
The sales floor has double in size and offers customers a bigger range of products across all departments. Visitors to the store will be able to browse a wide range of branded and own label goods, including toys, groceries, health & beauty and pet ranges.
The store originally employed 22 people but, with more space to cover, an additional 10 have been hired from the local area, increasing the number of people B&M employ in Hull to over 250.
As part of the opening celebrations, B&M employees invited local charity, Hessle Dog Rescue Centre, to be their VIP for the day. The local Deputy Mayor Councillor John Hewitt, and Mayoress Ald Betty Hewitt, were also in attendance.
The team rescue dogs that are suffering and need care and attention, they particular support those that are unwanted, sick or abused. They have successfully re-homed over 2000 dogs since they first started in 1988.
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, Sue Gelder, said: “The team from Hessle Dog Rescue Centre 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: “The new team have been working really hard to get the store ready for opening day, we can’t wait to get the doors open next Thursday and show customers their brand new B&M Hessle.”
