SATURDAY will see the long awaited opening of the brand new B&M Cowdenbeath store, at the new North End retail park at 9am.

The store will be creating 50 jobs and the new 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 Sense Scotland, who will be taking centre stage to officially unveil the new B&M store, alongside Lochgelly man Jim Leishman, the Provost of Fife.

The charity works with disabled children and adults and its aim is to create a supportive world for people with complex communication support needs where they can live meaningful lives and achieve their own ambitions.

In addition to opening the new store, the team will also receive £250 worth of B&M vouchers to go towards the charity.

The store manager, Colin Simpson, said: “The team at Sense Scotland really stood out for us as they go the extra mile for local people in the 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.”

He also commented: “Our new colleagues have been working really hard to get the store ready for opening day, we can’t wait to get the doors open on Saturday and show customers their brand new B&M.”

The store has undergone an internal and external refurbishment programme and created 50 new jobs for local people.

Customers can expect to find a wide variety of branded products including toys, food & drink, pet range, health & beauty and homewares.

The store also boasts its own garden centre – with everything from seeds to pots and hundreds of plant varieties delivered fresh to store throughout the season.
