Londonderry Welcomes New B&M Store
04 July 2018
Customers in Londonderry 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 50 jobs for people from the area.
Visitors to the store on Crescent 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 Live Life Lisa Orsi Foundation were invited along as their VIP guests for the day.
The charity was set up in 2016 to celebrate the memory of Lisa Orsi. Lisa collapsed and sadly died at the age of 22 after falling ill on a volcano trek in Indonesia in March 2015. The charity aims to help young people feel included through sport activities and also inspire them to be the best they can be – just like how Lisa lived her life.
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, Emmet McNally, said: “The team from Live Life Lisa Orsi Foundation 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: “The new team have been working really hard to get the store ready for today, we delighted to open the doors and show customers their brand new B&M Londonderry.”
Danielle McCluskey, Asset & Property Manager, Lotus Property, said: “We are thrilled to welcome B&M Bargains to Crescent Link Retail Park. The arrival of the popular brand will be a fantastic addition to our growing retail offering.
“Our aim is to provide further diversity and choice for our many visitors from both across Northern Ireland and further afield, and we will continue to grow and invest in the Retail Park to bring new changes on-site.”
