Saturday the 9th of February 2024, 8:00am saw the long-awaited opening of the brand new B&M store in St. Georges Shopping Centre, Harrow.
The discount retailer has taken possession of a previous 32,410sqft. Wilko and has undergone a comprehensive internal and external refurbishment programme. The launch of the new store has created more than 80 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 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 Harrow Giving charity to take centre stage and officially unveil the new B&M store.
Harrow Giving support and empower a range of diverse local projects to make a positive difference in the lives of Harrow residents.

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.”
