Local charity turn VIPs for the day to launch new store
Friday 16 February 9am will see the long awaited opening of the brand new B&M Oldham store, in Spindles Shopping Centre.
The new 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 Dr Kershaw’s Hospice who will be taking centre stage as they officially unveil the new B&M store, alongside the local Mayor, Cllr Shadab Qumer.
The charity aims to help people within the local community living with life-limiting illnesses by providing a range of services tailored to their needs. They also support the family and dependents of patients who need bereavement support after their loved one has passed away.
In addition to opening the new store, the representatives also received £250 worth of B&M vouchers as a thank you for taking part and for all their hard work in the local community.
The store manager, Lissa Berry, said: “The team from Dr Kershaw’s Hospice really stood out for us as they go the extra mile for local community, 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.”
She also commented: “The new team have been working really hard to get the store ready for opening day and we can’t wait to get the doors open Friday and show customers their new B&M Oldham.”
The top half of the former BHS store has undergone an internal and external refurbishment programme and created 25 jobs for local people.
B&M is one of the UK’s fastest growing retailers and customers can expect to find a wide variety of branded products including toys, food & drink, home ware, pet products, health & beauty and seasonal range.
