New B&M store to be officially opened by the Harbour Project this month

By Jessica Durston - 6 March 2023


Representatives from the Swindon non-profit The Harbour Project will be opening the new B&M store at the former Go Outdoors site.

Discount retailer, B&M, announced earlier this year that it will be relocating its Ocotal Way, Swindon store to a bigger and better site.

The new 25,691sqft. space, will aim to offer an even bigger selection of great bargains from grocery, toiletries and health & beauty to toys, homeware, and DIY.

The store will also have its own 8,677sqft Garden Centre selling hundreds of plant varieties and gardening products

The current Ocotal Way bargain store will shut their tills for the final time on Saturday 4 May, but customers will not have to wait much longer to get back in to store as the new site will open its doors at 9am on Saturday 11 March 2023.

The 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 The Harbour Project Charity to officially unveil the new B&M store.

The Harbour Project charity welcomes and supports refugees and asylum seekers in Swindon. They have worked tirelessly since Kosovo crisis in 2000 to help those who have risked their lives, families and homes fleeing war and persecution.

They welcome over 100 visitors a day to their organisation, offering support, practical help and a warm, safe space for social integration and classes.

The store manager at B&M Swindon, said: “We wanted a bigger and better store for our customers, giving them even more big, branded products.”

“We hope customers are going to be delighted with their new store, we’re really excited to get the doors open very soon.”
