B&M has confirmed that it's new Dartford discount store will be opening this weekend - just in time for Christmas.

The store, which is located in Princes Road in place of the former Homebase site, will open at 9am on Saturday, November 27.

The new site will be B&M’s second store in Dartford and the opening will create more than 80 jobs.

The discount retailer will stock a wide variety of branded products including toys, food and drink, pet range, health and beauty, cleaning, DIY and homeware.

It will also sell alcohol, laminate and vinyl flooring, paint and wallpaper.

The store will boast its own garden centre, selling a range of plants and gardening essentials including equipment.

A spokesperson from B&M said: “We’re thrilled to be opening our new store in Dartford and look forward to welcoming customers through its doors.

"It is great that we have been able to bring our second store to the area and create even more jobs opportunities for local people."

The store is located at the southwestern corner of Dartford Central Park and above Brooklands Lake.

Customers are told to head for the crossroads with Princes Road and Lowfield Street and go in an easterly direction along Princes Road - taking the first right turn.

There is parking available on site.
