B&M Opens in Former Wolstanton Homebase Store

B&M store opening

Dozens of jobs have been created following the grand opening of B&M's new store in Wolstanton.

Over 50 people from the local area have been employed at the former Homebase store, which can be found on Wolstanton 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, Staffordshire Adult Autism Society (SAAS), to be given some VIP treatment. They, alongside the Mayor, Cllr Gillian Heeson, helped unveil the new store.

The charity aims to provide support to people with Autism and Aspergers, as well as helping promote a better understanding of ASD spectrum. They also offer work experience training for ASD adults to help them gain new learning skills.

In addition to helping to open the new store, the club were given £250 worth of vouchers to spend.

The store manager, Paul Squires, said: “The team from Staffordshire Adult Autism Society really stood out for us as they go the extra mile for local people in the community, so 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: Our new colleagues have been working really hard to get the store ready for opening day, and we can’t wait to show customers their brand new B&M.”
