B&M To Create Dozens Of New Retail Jobs In Leeds

Discount homeware firm B&M is set to create dozens of full and part time retail jobs in Leeds with the opening of a new store in the Yorkshire city.

The new branch of B&M will open in the middle of March at Leeds’ Colton Retail Park and will create 70 new retail jobs for students and other jobseekers in the area.

B&M already has 10 outlets in Leeds but will now open a huge new store in the Colton area on the site of three former stores vacated by Boots, DW Sports and Next.

The eleventh branch of B&M in Leeds will open its doors to customers on the morning of Saturday 13th March, by which time most, if not, all of the 70 vacancies will have been filled.

The homeware retailer will join four other existing retailers at Colton Retail Park; Argos Extra, Pets At Home, Poundstretcher Extra and Sainsbury’s.

Announcing the new jobs in Leeds, a spokesperson for B&M said: “We’re feeling extremely positive about the creation of more jobs for local people during these difficult times 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 our new customers through the door in March,” added the spokesperson.

B&M was founded in 1978, originally branded as Billington & Mayman, with the first outlet at Cleveleys in Lancashire. The chain now boasts over 650 stores and employs more than 30,000 people in full and part time roles across the UK.
