In a welcome boost to the local economy, B&M are thrilled to announce the launch of its brand-new store in St. George’s Shopping Centre, Harrow. The launch of the new store will create 80 jobs for local people.
The discount retailer has taken possession of a former Wilko store which provides 14,444sqft. ground floor space and 17,966sqft. mezzanine space, giving a combined sales area of 32,410sqft.; which will undergo a comprehensive internal and external refurbishment programme before officially opening its doors at 8am on Saturday 10th February 2024.
Customers can expect to find a wide variety of branded groceries for the best possible price including a range of food, drink and pet food. There will also be a fantastic selection of quality health and beauty products, homeware, electricals, DIY essentials, toys, games, gifts and plenty more to explore.
The colleagues were asked to nominate a local charity they think truly deserves some VIP treatment for the work they do for the local community. They chose the team from Harrow Giving to take centre stage and officially unveil the new B&M store.
Harrow Giving support and empower a range of diverse local projects to make a positive difference in the lives of Harrow residents. They do this by collecting donations from residents, local employees, businesses, and philanthropists as well as providing volunteering opportunities. Their mission is to provide support for local groups, organisations, and individuals to enhance the quality of people’s lives and build resilient communities for all. Their vision is to create a borough where people are proud of their local area, have better opportunities, feel supported, inspired, and empowered. They promise to invest funding and support where it is most needed and where it can make a significant impact to a diverse range of communities.
The store manager from B&M said: “We’re feeling extremely positive about the creation of more jobs for local people, and we hope customers are going to be delighted with their new store.”
The store manager also commented: “Harrow Giving really stood out for us, so we wanted to give them some VIP treatment as a thank you for all the hard work that they have done. We hope that our donation can help them to continue the great work they do.”
