Taunton Food Bank were invited to cut the ribbon on the opening day.

B&M Bargains wanted to thank the charity for serving the community throughout the coronavirus pandemic and so they also received £250 worth of B&M vouchers.

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."

The building has undergone extensive internal and external refurbishments, and has created more than 50 jobs.

The store is open from 8am until 8pm from Monday to Saturday, and is open from 10.30am until 4.30pm on Sundays.

The discount retailer already has stores in Bridgwater, Burnham-on-Sea, Yeovil and Tiverton.

Customers can expect to find a wide variety of branded products including toys, food and drink, pet range, health and beauty and home wares in the new store.
