Two B&M stores have re-opened after closing temporarily. 

The Runcorn store has moved to a larger unit on the Trident Retail Park and the Wallsend store has been extended. 

Runcorn

The original store closed on May 17th and a much larger unit on the same retail park is now our new home, with more space for more bargains!

As part of the opening day process, colleagues nominated local charity, Mind, to be given some VIP treatment. They helped unveil the new store alongside the Deputy Mayor, Cllr Chris Rowe.

The charity offers a variety of different services to support people suffering with mental health issues within the local community. This can include one-to-one support, befriending, social groups and activities, as well as one-off events, open sessions and short course.

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

The store manager, David Concannon, said: “The team from Mind 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, so we can’t wait to show customers their brand new B&M.”

Wallsend

B&M's Wallsend store on Wiltshire Drive closed on May 27th and an expansion to create a bigger and better store has now been completed.

The store employed 45 colleagues originally, but due to a much bigger space, that has seen an additional 25 locals hired.

As part of the opening day process, colleagues nominated Air Cadets to be given £250 worth of vouchers and to help open the new store alongside the Lord Mayor, Cllr Norma Redfearn.

The Air Cadets encourages young people to challenge themselves through activities, as well as learn new skills that they can use in other aspects of life.

“The team from Air Cadets really stood out for us as they go the extra mile for local young people in the community, we wanted to give them some VIP treatment as a thank you for all the hard work they do,"  said store manager, Colin McKee.
