Opening date revealed for new B&M next door to Aldi at Fulwood Central Retail Park
A new B&M is just days away from opening at a new retail park in Fulwood.
The discount retailer will follow in Aldi's footsteps when it opens its new store at Fulwood Central Retail Park, off Eastway, next week.
Aldi welcomed shoppers to its new store on August 1 and soon afterwards B&M confirmed it would be taking up residence in the unit next door.
Today (October 29), B&M has revealed that it will officially open its new store at Fulwood Central on Thursday, November 7.
B&M's familiar blue and orange signage has now been erected at the retail park, which will also boast a drive-thru Costa Coffee and a Subway later this year.
Store Manager, Ben McDonald, said: "We’re really excited to get the doors open next Thursday at Fulwood Central and can’t wait to show our customers their brand new B&M.
"Customers can expect to find a wide variety of branded products including toys, food and drink, pet food, baby food, gifts, health and beauty and homewares and plenty more.
"We will have numerous major brands in store - all for the best available price."
It is the fourth B&M to open in Preston, alongside stores in Ribbleton Lane, Ringway and St John's Shopping Centre.
