The newly expanded store will offer customers an even bigger selection of great bargains from big brands across a variety of departments.

Customers can expect to find a wide variety of branded groceries for the best possible price including a range of food, drink, and pet food. There will also be a fantastic selection of quality health and beauty products, homeware, electricals, DIY essentials, toys, games, gifts and plenty more to explore.

The store will also boast its own 5,593sqft. garden centre, selling hundreds of plant varieties and gardening essentials.

The 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 the team from Changing Lives Charity to take centre stage and officially unveil the new B&M store. The Changing Lives Charity have been helping people facing some of the most challenging circumstances for 50 years. They began as a small charity, who help people experiencing homelessness through their hostels and day centres. Now they operate nationally, helping thousands of people each year to change their lives for the better.

The store manager at Gateshead said: “Our colleagues have been working really hard to get the store looking fantastic for opening day, we are so excited to show customers the new & improved B&M store.”
