B&M Creates Dozens of Jobs as New Store Opens in Ayr
B&M continued its expansion today as a new store was opened in Ayr, creating jobs for dozens of locals.
The addition to B&M's portfolio in the region comes as a huge boost to the local economy, creating around 35 jobs for people from the area. Visitors to the store, located on Heathfield Retail Park, will be able to browse a wide range of branded and own label goods, including toys, groceries, health & beauty and pet ranges. As part of the opening celebrations, B&M employees invited local charity, Ayrshire Hospice, to be their VIP for the day. The charity provides outstanding quality care and services which supports those with life-limiting illness. The aim is to help local adults live as actively as they can to the end of their lives, however long that may be. The foundation were handed £250 worth of vouchers to spend in-store as a thank you for their hard work in the community. The store manager, Kirsty Laing, said: “The team from Ayrshire Hospice really stood out for us as they go the extra mile for local community. We wanted to give them some VIP treatment as a thank you for all the hard work they do. “We hope that our donation can help them to continue the great work they do.” She also commented: “The new team have been working really hard to get the store ready for opening day and we can’t wait to get the doors open next Saturday and show customers their new B&M Ayr.”
