Discount retailer B&M has officially opened its new store in Eastbourne, offering high-quality and affordable goods to the local community.

The store spans an impressive 23,000ft² and is located at the Sovereign Harbour Retail Park. It also includes a spacious 9,000ft² Garden Centre featuring a wide variety of plants and gardening essentials.

The new B&M store welcomed its first customers on Thursday, 14 September 2023. The site, previously occupied by Cineworld, has undergone extensive refurbishment to transform it into a one-stop shopping destination.

Shoppers can explore a diverse range of products, from branded groceries to health and beauty items, homeware, electricals, DIY essentials, toys, games and gifts, all available at competitive prices.

Local charity honoured at the opening

During the grand opening ceremony, B&M store employees nominated Eastbourne Foodbank, a local charity, to receive special recognition for their invaluable community support.

Eastbourne Foodbank says it is committed to ensuring that no one in the community goes hungry.
