B&M has confirmed when it will be opening its new store in Worthing.

The discount retailer will be replacing the former Wilko store in the Guildbourne Centre – creating 75 jobs for local people.

The 20,968sqft store is undergoing a ‘comprehensive internal and external refurbishment programme’ before officially opening its doors at 8am on Wednesday, February 21.

"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,” a B&M spokesperson said.

"There will also be a fantastic selection of quality health and beauty products, homeware, electricals, DIY essentials, toys, games, gifts, and plenty more to explore.”

The store’s 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 Turning Tides to take centre stage and officially unveil the new B&M store.
