B&M has opened two new stores, one in York's Clifton Moor Retail Park and one in Leighton Buzzard.

Customers were delighted with the unveiling of a brand new B&M store on Clifton Moor Retail Park, earlier this morning.  The new store replaces the previous one that was detroyed in a fire in 2018, and North Yorkshire Fire & Rescue were invited as VIP guests for the opening as a thank you for helping to control the fire that broke out.

Alongside them were Mayor, Cllr Keith Orrel and Mayoress, Judith Orrel.

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, £250 has been given to the Fire Service Charity.

A wide range of branded products are available to purchase in-store, including toys, food & drink, homeware, pet products, health & beauty and seasonal.

The store manager, Leanne North, said: “The team from North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue really stood out for us, they go the extra mile for local people in the community on a daily basis.

“We wanted to give them some VIP treatment as a thank you for all the hard work they’ve done.”

She also commented: “Our new colleagues have been working really hard to get the store ready for opening day, and show customers their brand new B&M.”

The former Poundworld store has undergone an internal and external refurbishment and created 20 new jobs for people from the local area.

Leighton Buzzard

Yesterday (6th February) was the day of the long-awaited, brand-new B&M store in Leighton Buzzard.  More than 50 jobs were created at the store, which can be found on Grovebury Retail Park.

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, Kids Out, to be given some VIP treatment. They, alongside the Deputy Mayor, Cllr Dave Bowater, helped unveil the new store.

The charity aims to give local disadvantaged children positive and fun experiences to help them create a better future for themselves. They do this through a variety of services such as Fun Days, a Toy Box service and much more.

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, Paula Turney, said: “The team from Kids Out really stood out for us as they go the extra mile for local disadvantaged children in the 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.”
