A new store opening in Beccles has created 70 jobs with bosses looking for someone special to be guest of honour at the opening ceremony.
B&M, one of the UK’s fastest growing retailers, announced the move to the north Suffolk town after securing shop premises in Beccles.
The finishing touches are currently being made to the former Family Bargains on George Westwood Way with the new store opening on Friday, November 21, at 9am.
Store bosses are also giving a deserving member of the community the chance to be a VIP for the morning.
The search is on for a local hero to open the new B&M Home Store and Garden Centre.
