New B&M Store Opens in West Midlands

18 May 2016

Residents of a West Midlands town were celebrating the opening of a new B&M Store on Wednesday.

Shoppers in West Bromwich were in for a treat when the ribbon was cut at the new B&M Astle Park.

The B&M Bargains Store is the second B&M in the town, following in the footsteps of the Bargains Store at the Farley Centre.

Victors to the store are able to browse the wide ranges of groceries, toys, homewares and electricals on offer – including both branded and own-label goods.

To help celebrate another landmark day for one of Britain’s fastest growing retailers, representatives from the Sue Ryder charity were invited to officially open the store as part of B&M’s Local Hero Award.

This is given to an individual or organisation who have made an important contribution to their local community.

The charity, which has provided palliative care and support for suffers of a range of illnesses for over 60 years, were invited to take part in the opening ceremony after being nominated by store colleagues.

Sue Ryder was awarded £250 worth of B&M vouchers as a thank you for opening the store and being part of a landmark day for B&M.

Also making an appearance on a memorable day was the Mayor of Sandwell, Councillor Barbara Price, who gratefully accepted an invitation to attend.

A total of 30 jobs have been created as a result of the new store, a welcome boost for the local economy.
