B&M has announced it is set to open a brand new store creating 50 new jobs in Kirkstall.

The store is due to open its doors for the first time at 9am on Saturday, 3 August 2019, at the former Dunnes site next to Morrisons on Savins Mill Way.

Customers can expect to find variety of branded products including toys, food and drink, pet range, health and beauty and homewares.

A spokesperson from B&M said:

“We’re feeling really positive about the creation of more jobs for local people and we hope customers are going to be delighted with their new store.

“We are all really excited to get the doors open and welcome our new customers through the door in a few months.”

The Dunnes store closed last year after the Irish-based company withdrew its presence in the country due to Brexit fears. B&M stores opened in Armley in 2017 and at the Owlcotes Centre in Pudsey last year (pictured above).

A number of job vacancies are available at the store and can be found here. Closing date is July 15.
