B&M has opened the doors of its brand-new store in Titchfield which has created more than 80 jobs.

The new B&M store & garden centre opened on Saturday. The discount retailer has taken possession of the former Argos and Sealy stores, combining them into a 34,840 square feet site.

It is fully kitted out with a 4,907 square foot garden centre, selling hundreds of plant varieties and gardening essentials.

The site has gone under an extensive internal and external refurbishment programme.

A B&M spokesperson said: “It was really exciting to welcome customers through the doors and the feedback so far has been fantastic.

“A big thank you to the team at The Rainbow Centre who helped us open the store, we hope that our donation can help them to continue to do the great work they do.”

Staff were asked to nominate a charity they think truly deserves some special treatment for the work they do for the local community.

The workers at B&M in Titchfield chose The Rainbow Centre charity to take centre stage and unveil the new B&M store.

The Rainbow Centre for Conductive Education is a charity which supports children and adults affected by neurological conditions.

The charity was created by a small group of parents looking to provide the best help and support they could for their children with Cerebral Palsy.

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

Customers can expect to find a wide variety of branded groceries including a range of food, drink and pet food.

There is also a fantastic selection of quality health and beauty products, homeware, electricals, DIY essentials, toys and games.
