Shoppers in Welshpool welcome new B&M store

B&M Welshpool

Shoppers in Welshpool Witness New B&M Store Opening

Locals in Welshpool were celebrating on Saturday as the ribbon was cut on the town’s long awaited B&M store.

Based on Mill Lane Retail Park, the Bargains Store has created 40 new jobs for local people, which comes as a welcome boost to the local economy.

Visitors to the store will be able to browse a wide range of branded and own label products, including toys, groceries, health & beauty and pet products.

Store colleagues nominated a local charity, the Heulwen Trust, to receive some VIP treatment and help open the store.

The Trust aim to bring enjoyment and pleasure to disabled children and adults, with the motto of “bringing sunshine to people’s lives”.

They offer exciting scenic canal boat trips through some of the most beautiful Welsh countryside, with over 69,000 people with disabilities having enjoyed free daily trips.

In addition to cutting the ribbon, the trust also received £250 worth of B&M vouchers as a thank you for taking part and all their hard work in the community.

Also appearing on opening day was the Deputy Mayor of Welshpool, Councillor Hazel Evans, who gratefully accepted an invitation to attend.

Darren Fountain, B&M Welshpool store manager, said: “The team from Heulwen Trust really stood out for us as they go the extra mile for 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.”

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

The fun didn’t stop once the ribbon was cut, with a face painter on hand to transform customers into their favourite super heroes, animals or characters.
