The new store opened at 9am on Saturday, March 13 and sells 'a wide variety of branded groceries' including a range of food, drink, baby food and pet food. There is also a selection of quality health and beauty products, homeware, electricals, DIY essentials, toys, games, gifts and plenty more to explore.

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 Leeds South & East Foodbank who took centre stage to officially unveil the new B&M store.

Leeds South & East Foodbank are part of a nationwide network of foodbanks, supported by the Trussell Trust, working to combat poverty and hunger across the UK. The charity provides three-day nutritionally balanced emergency food and support for individuals and families in Leeds.
