B&M has confirmed it is opening a new store in Dartford.

The bargain chain's new shop will be located on a former Homebase site in Princes Road - in the southwestern corner of Dartford Central Park and above Brooklands Lake.

The scheduled store opening date is currently Saturday, November 27.

Its in-store services will include alcohol, laminate flooring, paint, vinyl flooring, wallpaper and its very own garden centre.

The garden centre will stock plants, planters, tools, materials and equipment.

The News Shopper previously reported that B&M had submited plans to Dartford Council to “permit the display and sale of a wider range of goods”.

A spokesperson for B&M said: "B&M on Princes Road in Dartford is the perfect place to pick up all of your branded weekly groceries for the best possible price - including wine, beer, baby food and pet food.

"We also stock a huge range of budget-friendly health and beauty buys, toys, games, electricals, gifts, DIY products, homeware and even more!

"There is even a garden centre on site, where you can find all of the plants, planters, tools, materials and equipment you need to maintain your outdoor spaces.

"We’re located at the southwestern corner of Dartford Central Park and above Brooklands Lake, so it’s very easy to find us. Simply head for the crossroads with Princes Road and Lowfield Street and head in an easterly direction along Princes Road.

"Take the first right turn and you’ll find us right ahead!

"We have plenty of parking available on site, though we recommend checking for any restrictions before you travel.

"You can also take the 414 or 429 bus from Home Gardens towards South Darenth, alighting at Cranford Road after about 4 minutes and continuing down Lowfield Road, taking a left at the crossroads."
