The new B&M store

Over the weekend a brand new B&M store was opened in Mariners Way at Preston Docks.


The discount store has taken the place of the former Homebase and includes a brand new garden centre and has created 75 new jobs in the area.

Customers can expect to find a wide variety of branded groceries for the best possible price including a range of food, drink, baby food and pet food.

There will also be a selection of quality health and beauty products, homeware, electricals, DIY essentials, toys, games, gifts and plenty more to explore.

The new colleagues were asked to nominate a local charity they thought deserved some VIP treatment for the work they do for the local community. They chose the team from Luv Preston to take centre stage and officially unveil the new store.

Luv Preston is a local charity which aims to love and serve the city of Preston by providing care and support to those who find themselves disadvantaged and disconnected in the community. The charity runs a homeless drop in centre at St Wilfred’s Community Centre every Tuesday where they serve nutritious and wholesome meals.

In addition to opening the store, the team also received £250 worth of B&M vouchers which will go towards helping the charity to continue doing the great work they do.
