B&M has announced it is set to open a brand new store in Wrexham on Friday, creating more than 50 jobs for locals at the site.
The new store is set to open for the first time at 9am and will see a unit come to life on the Border Retail Park – with news this is the company’s 700th store.
They say customers can expect to find a “huge range of brand name products including food, drink, baby food and pet food” and “there will also be a fantastic selection of quality health and beauty products, household items, electrical appliances, DIY items, toys, games, gifts and much more to discover”.
New staff were asked to name a local charity and they chose the Advance Brighter Futures team to take center stage to officially unveil the new B&M store.
A B&M spokesperson said: ‘The charity is a mental health charity based in Wrexham North Wales and is focused on improving the quality of life for people in Wrexham.
The charity was established in 1992 and aims to work in partnership with people experiencing mental distress to promote health, wellbeing and recovery in Wrexham and its local communities.
“As well as opening the new store, the team will also receive £500 worth of B&M shopping vouchers to donate to charity.”
Ahead of the 700th store opening, B&Ms CEO Simon Arora said: “We are delighted to open our 700th store and really look forward to welcoming our new customers to Wrexham.
Just 15 years ago, B&M was just a regional retailer with just 20 stores, mostly in Lancashire. Today we have stores that span the length of the UK, from Aberdeen to Penzance. Our continued growth demonstrates that “everyone loves a bargain”.
“As we continue to grow, everyone at B&M can be proud of this special day, the opening of our 700th store and what they have accomplished to achieve this momentous occasion. The dedication and hard work of our colleagues makes us very proud.
