Spindles Shopping Centre in Oldham Welcomes New B&M Store
16 February 2018
There was plenty of excitement in Oldham today as B&M opened up a new store in Spindles Shopping Centre.
The addition to B&M's portfolio in the region comes as a huge boost to the local economy, creating 25 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, Dr Kershaw's Hospice, to be their VIP for the day. Local Mayor, Cllr Shadab Qumer, was also in attendance.
The charity aims to help people within the local community living with life-limiting illnesses by providing a range of services tailored to their needs. They also support the family and dependents of patients who need bereavement support after their loved one has passed away.
The foundation were handed £250 worth of vouchers to spend in-store as a thank you for their hard work in the community.
The top half of the former BHS store has undergone an internal and external refurbishment programme.
The store manager, Lissa Berry, said: “We’re feeling really positive about the creation of new jobs for local people and feedback from customers has been great so far.
“A big thank you to the team from Dr Kershaw’s Hospice who helped us open the store on Friday morning, we hope that our donation can help them continue the outstanding work they do for the local community.”
