New B&M store to open in Broadheath Retail Park

First published in News

B&M Bargains is to open a new store in Broadheath Retail Park, creating 68 new jobs.


Officially opening on April 18, the new 20,000 sq ft store, on George Richards Way, will be located within the former Toys R Us unit.

The variety retailer, which is one of the fastest growing in the UK, has pledged to invest in people from the Trafford community.


Area manager, Larry Downey, said: “B&M is committed to recruiting from the local area and I’m pleased we’ve found a great team from in and around Altrincham.


“We’ve been selling big brands at sensational prices since 1978, and now the people of Altrincham will be able to buy some great value products from their local store.”


Store manager, Graeme Reid, said: “We’ve all worked very hard over the past few weeks to make sure the store is ready for the opening.


“We’re extremely pleased to be creating jobs for local people and look forward to joining the local community.”


Kids’ favourite Peppa Pig will be at the store on April 18 to officially open the store and welcome the new B&M Broadheath’s first shoppers.


The grand opening will also have free face painting, Haribo giveaways and special opening day offers.

Great! Just what we have always needed in Altrincham! Home Bargains, Poundland, pound stretcher etc were simply just not enough! The fact that there are two other large B&M's in nearby Sale and Baguley doesn't even come in to it!!!!! There's lots of stores not present on this retail park that are on other similar retail parks...but no...let's put a B&M there instead! Great for jobs (especially with the loss of 'Toys R Us' but not the best use of space. Hobby Craft and Pets at Home at least brought something more to Altrincham!!

Awful ! Why on earth would you put a horrible shop to attract even more chavs to the area ! Why is Altrincham turning into a haven for rubbish awful pound land type stores ? This is not good for Altrincham it only entices people to shop elsewhere in nicer areas !! When will they ever learn ??
