A DATE has been set for the opening of Wrexham's new B&M store.

The discount retailer revealed plans to open a large new store in Wrexham in two empty retail units on the Border Retail.

The new store, which will include a garden centre, combines the former Poundstretcher and Oak Furnitureland units.

It will open on February 4 - but customers will have to wait for a little longer for the garden centre to be ready for business.

Right now, workers are busy transforming the store. The B&M signage is up on the front on the unit but the Poundstretcher sign remains on the side.

The shop, which covers an area of almost 2,900 square metres with the outdoor garden centre measuring 421 square metres, is the second B&M in Wrexham.

The other is on the Central Retail Park.


Work begins on the new B&M store at the end of 2021.

In a planning statement, the company said the store would deliver a major economic boost for the area and create more than 48 new jobs..

It said: “The proposal would generate significant community benefits through creating a number of new jobs and generating earnings.

“A minimum of 48 full time equivalent jobs would be created by B&M Retail Ltd opening a new home store and garden centre.”

The company specialises in selling household goods including DIY, hardware and garden centre items.

It is currently looking to increase the number of stores it runs in the UK to 950 by opening between 40 to 50 new shops each year.
