B&M is opening new Lincolnshire store and 13 others this summer in big expansion

B&M has revealed plans to open 14 new stores this summer, with the first one set to launch as early as this week. Lincolnshire is set to benefit from the expansion, with the retailer moving into a large empty unit in Gainsborough.

This summer will see the next step in the bargain retailer’s expansion plans, with B&M hoping to open another 250 stores in the coming years. Among the planned openings over the next few months, three are relocations following the chain’s purchase of former Wilko stores last year, while one is an expansion of an existing location.

The Gainsborough store is set to move to a former Wilko in Marshalls Yard. The current store will close its doors on July 17, three days prior to its reopening at the new site, reports the Mirror.

The three stores undergoing relocation include BandM’s outlets in Bulwell, Nottingham, Oldham in Greater Manchester, and Gainsborough, Lincolnshire. In Nottingham, the existing BandM store is scheduled to shut down on June 7, with the new outlet opening shortly after on June 12.

Since January, the budget retailer B&M has launched 24 new stores across the UK, with the latest opening its doors on May 31 in Bexleyheath, London. Boasting over 700 outlets nationwide, B&M is aiming for a long-term goal of reaching 950 locations.

In a March update, the company revealed plans to inaugurate an additional 45 B&M stores within the next two years, following the 47 new stores from the previous year. The expansion strategy gained momentum after B&M acquired up to 51 sites previously operated by Wilko, which had entered administration.

According to B&M’s financial reports, these new acquisitions are performing “ahead of expectations”.
