Some 25 jobs have been created in Weston after a popular homeware retailer opened its newly-expanded site last week.
The B&M store, at the Gallagher Retail Park in Marchfields Way, opened its doors to the public on Thursday. Weston Mayor Roz Willis was on hand to aid with the ribbon-cutting, and was joined by volunteers from charity Crossroads Care Young Carers Service.
Crossroads, which is based in Graham Road, received £250 worth of B&M vouchers as a thank you for opening the store, while its volunteers joined the opening day to help customers with bag-packing.
Store manager Michael Fogarty said: “We’re really proud to be creating another 25 jobs and continuing to play our part in the local community.
“We were honoured to have representatives from Crossroads Care cutting the ribbon alongside the mayor to officially mark the opening of our bigger and better store.
“We are delighted to play our part in the local community with a donation of vouchers to a very worthwhile cause. Having our colleagues choose the local charity themselves makes it extra special.”
