B&M is now open at Monks Cross!

B&M is now open here at Monks Cross. The launch of the new store has created more than 50 jobs for local people.

Customers can expect to find a wide variety of branded groceries for the best possible price including a range of food, drink and pet food. There is also a fantastic selection of quality health and beauty products, homeware, electricals, DIY essentials, toys, games, gifts and plenty more to explore. The store will also boast its own 6,889sqft. garden centre, selling hundreds of plant varieties and gardening essentials.

The colleagues were asked to nominate a local charity they think truly deserves some VIP treatment for the work they do for the local community. They chose the team from York Against Cancer charity to take centre stage and officially unveil the new B&M store.

York Against Cancer are a small, independent, local charity who over the last three decades have raised more than £20 million to make a difference to the lives of local people affected by cancer. They provide practical help and support for patients and their families living with cancer in York, North and East Yorkshire. This includes providing a minibus to St James Hospital, respite breaks, The Levenson support Centre which provides complimentary therapy sessions, a mobile chemotherapy unit, exercise classes and support groups. They also fund vital research and education to prevent and cure cancer in the future.

In addition to opening the store, the team will also receive £250 worth of B&M vouchers, which will go towards helping the charity to continue doing the great work they do. 

The store manager, said: “It was really exciting to welcome customers through the doors; the feedback so far has been fantastic.”

A big thank you to the team at the York Against Cancer who helped us open the store, we hope that our donation can help them to continue to do the great work they do.”
