Ortongate Shopping Centre Welcomes New B&M Store
29 November 2017
There was plenty of excitement in Peterborough today as B&M opened up a new store, creating dozens of jobs for locals.
The addition to B&M's portfolio in the region comes as a huge boost to the local economy, creating 60 jobs for people from the area.
Visitors to the store 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, B&M employees invited local charity, Little Miracles, to be their VIP for the day. Local Mayor, Cllr John Fox and his wife, Judy, were also in attendance.
The team supports families that have children with additional needs, disabilities and life-limiting conditions. The charity is based at The Spinney, Hartwell Way, it’s a place where these children can play, laugh and create friendships, whilst the families are able to access advice, support and care.
The foundation were handed £250 worth of vouchers to spend in-store as a thank you for their hard work in the community.
The store manager, Matt Nelson, said: “The team from Little Miracles 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.”
He 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 Thursday and show customers their new B&M Ortongate.”
