B&M has officially announced its excitement regarding the opening of a new store in St. Georges Shopping Centre, Harrow Town Centre. The opening of this store is anticipated to generate 80 employment opportunities for local residents and has been warmly welcomed by members of Harrow Online.
The discount retailer has taken possession of a previous Wilko store which provides a space of 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.
Visitors can explore an extensive selection of well-known grocery items at competitive prices, spanning food, beverages, and pet supplies. Additionally, the store offers a diverse range of health and beauty products, homeware, electricals, DIY essentials, toys, games, gifts, and more for discovery.
The colleagues at the new store 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.”
They added, “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.”
