More than 35 Locals Hired at New B&M Northampton Store

10 August 2019

Customers in Northampton were delighted this morning following the long-awaited opening of their brand new store on Trenery Way Castle.

Over 35 people from the local area have been employed at the store, which contains a wide range of branded products, including toys, food & drink, homeware, pet products, health & beauty and seasonal.

As part of the opening day process, colleagues nominated local charity, Mencap, to be given some VIP treatment. They helped unveil the new store with the Deputy Mayor, Cllr Brian W Sergeant.

The charity provide social and leisure opportunities to young people and adults with learning disabilities. They run weekly social clubs, sports clubs and projects.

In addition to helping to open the new store, the foundation were given £250 worth of vouchers to spend.

The store manager, Wayne O’Connor, said: “The team at Mencap really stood out for us as they go the extra mile for local people with learning disabilities in the 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: Our new colleagues have been working really hard to get the store ready for opening day, we can’t wait to get the doors open on Saturday and show customers their brand new B&M.”
