The New Cross B&M store which opens later this month is set to be huge and create 35 jobs for people in the area.

The new store will be located at Unit 2, New Cross Gate Retail Park.

The venue was previously a Harvey’s & Bensons for Beds store which provides a space of 176,760sqft for the new B&M.

It will also undergo a comprehensive internal and external revamp before officially opening its doors at 8am on Thursday, February 29, 2024.

Customers can expect to find a wide variety of branded goods a range of food, drink, pet food, health and beauty products, homeware, electricals, DIY essentials, toys, games, gifts and more at the store.

The store manager from B&M said: “We’re feeling extremely positive about the creation of more jobs for local people, and we hope customers are going to be delighted with their new store.”

“We are all really excited to get the doors open and welcome new customers through the door.”

These openings are part of 45 new B&M locations planned for 2024 and the company says that same number is projected for the next financial year.

The company's website has already disclosed 17 locations as part of a series of 45 stores planned for a 2024 opening.

Last year saw a similar push in development, with numerous new stores popping up and several existing ones relocating.

All in all, the group looks set to have introduced 76 new stores across all its brands by March.

This includes 45 B&M stores within the UK, 11 in France, and 20 novel Heron outlets.

Alex Russo, chief executive of the group, said: “The performance across the ‘golden quarter’ has been pleasing, with strong operational execution across the three businesses.

“Our strategy remains unchanged – we are an everyday low-price discounter with a laser-focus in keeping excellence in retail standards and our costs the lowest.

“This allows us to provide our products at the best price to all customers, many of whom continue to face significant cost-of-living pressures.

“Our store pipeline is strong and we will open not less than 45 B&M UK stores in each of the next two financial years, driving disciplined cash-generating growth.”
