Ipswich B&M Store Almost Doubles in Size Following Relocation
21 September 2019
The long-awaited grand re-opening of B&M's Ipswich store on Felixstone Road has arrived.
The original store closed earlier this month and the relocation to a bigger and better store has now been completed.
The store employed 43 colleagues originally, but due to a much bigger space, that has seen an additional 40 locals hired - almost doubling the number of staff in-store.
As part of the opening day process, colleagues nominated FIND Ipswich, to be given some VIP treatment. Alongside them, the Deputy Mayor, Cllr Jan Parry, was on hand to cut the ceremonial ribbon.
The charity help those in the local community who are living in poverty. They offer free food, household items, furniture, nursery equipment and much more to help ease any stress or upset.
In addition to helping to open the new store, they were given £250 worth of vouchers to spend.
The store manager, Tim Pitts, said: “The team from FIND Ipswich 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.”
