Customers flood into new Melton B&Q store

MELTON’S new B&Q store opened its doors to the public for the first time on Saturday.

Staff of old (who also worked at the former Focus DIY store) and new welcomed visitors and customers to the store and its extensive range of DIY products.

It was officially opened by store worker Sharon Walker, who has worked on site for the past 25 years, assisted by Rutland and Melton MP Alan Duncan.

Activities held to celebrate the opening included face painting, a tool box tombola and a trampoline giveaway. Local community radio station 103 The Eye was also broadcasting live from the store.

Lucky customers also got a helping hand with their shopping as the store gave away giftcards worth £500 on the opening day.

Manager David Cook gave Mr Duncan a guided tour of the newly refurbished store and introduced him to staff.

Mr Cook said: “This site has served the local community for years and the B&Q team aim to continue the good work. Not only are we on hand to help our customers create their dream homes but we also hope to give something back in the months and years to come with our fundraising efforts for local charities.”

Mr Duncan said: “I’m delighted B&Q has seized the opportunity to establish its presence in Melton. It’s always a boost to the local economy when new jobs can be created and existing ones secured.”
