New Kendal B&M Store Officially Opens on Lakeland Retail Park

29 November 2018

B&M set up shop on Lakeland Retail Park in Kendal this morning, with the help of local charity, Manna House.

More than 45 jobs were created at the store in Kendal where a wide range of branded products are available to purchase, including toys, food & drink, homeware, pet products, health & beauty and seasonal.

As part of the opening day process, colleagues nominated local charity, Manna House, to be given some VIP treatment. They, alongside the Deputy Mayor, Cllr Alvin Finch, helped unveil the new store.

The team provide a community of support to meet the physical, social and emotional needs of people who are homeless or vulnerably housed in South Lakeland.

As a thank you for all of the hard work they do in the community, and for helping to open the new B&M store, the charity were handed £250 worth of vouchers to spend in-store.

The store manager, Mike Gibson, said: “The team from Manna House 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.”
