A huge new B&M store is opening in Dartford - and shoppers living nearby are absolutely buzzing about it.

The News Shopper reported on Monday that the new bargain shop will open on Saturday, November 27 - and it'll come with its very own garden centre as well.

It's taking over the former Homebase site in Princes Road, in the southwestern corner of Dartford Central Park and above Brooklands Lake.

And, since the news broke, everyone has gone mad about it on social media.

One News Shopper reader said she will go to bed early the night before the store opens and set an alarm first thing to go, until another beat her to it and said she would even "camp outside" the store to get there first.

One reader commented on Facebook that she "NEEDS" to go, another dubbed it a "dream land" and someone claimed their whole life "had changed" (for the better).

A number of readers said they can't wait to go to the new B&M for their Christmas shopping - while others expressed their excitement by tagging their Facebook friends to make sure they'd seen the big news too.

One reader said: "We are doing a trip when this bad boy opens."

Another commented: "This has made me way too happy!!!!!!!"

And one told Facebook: "Me and granny are going to be in the queue on the first day lol we’ve made a date x"

So, if there's anything we need at a time of trouble - we now know it's a huge new B&M store opening on our doorsteps.

The new Dartford store will have its very own garden centre, stocking plants, planters, tools, materials and equipment.

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