Newport Relocation Complete as B&M Opens at East Retail Park

15 November 2017

The relocation of B&M's Newport store has been completed, with the new-look store at East Retail Park opening to the public on Wednesday.

The new store opening comes as a huge boost to the local economy, with the store increasing the number of employees by 60 having previously employed just 23 people at its former location at Maesglas Retail Park .

Visitors to the store, located on East 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 well as an extensive DIY, decorating and furniture range.

As part of the opening celebrations, B&M employees invited local charity, Royal Gwent Hospital Baby Unit, to be their VIP for the day, as well as local Mayor, Cllr David Fouweather.

The nurses on the specialist unit care for Gwent’s most sick babies, from those born at the very edges of survivable prematurity, around 23 weeks, to those born at full term who require specialist intervention.

They were handed £250 worth of vouchers to spend in-store as a thank you for their hard work in the community.

The store manager, Susan Pumford, said: “The nurses from the Royal Gwent Hospital Baby Unit really stood out for us as they go the extra mile for 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.”

She also commented: The new team have been working really hard to get the store ready for opening day and we can’t wait to get the doors open and show customers their new B&M Newport.”

On Saturday 18 November, customers will also be able to enter the B&M Big Prize Bonanza, a free game show taking place at the store to carry the atmosphere throughout the day. Those who enter will be in with a chance of winning prizes including a Slow Cooker, B&M vouchers, Cadbury’s chocolates and much more.
