It will certainly be a welcome boost to the local economy as a brand new store opens in the town.
Opening at 9am on Saturday 13th April, more than 50 jobs are being created.
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 the a few weeks.”
Job roles are now advertised on the B&M careers website and range from sales assistant, to floor managers and cleaners.
Can you help save Maggy’s from closing?
Since opening its doors back in June ’18 Maggy’s has grown hugely in popularity, but after planning officers refused to allow them to stay they are unable to find anywhere else to move to and may have to close.
The affordable food store is in a quandary. It’s success has meant that the store should be able to grow and continue to support the local community.
But ever since Maggy’s opened its doors it has encountered problems with the planning officers who say that the store does not meet the category of business it needs to be in the location it is.
This has caused a real problem for the store and ever since this was discovered they have tried to find a solution with Crawley Council about what they are to do.
Now with only weeks left before the deadline when they have to move out they still have been unable to find a suitable venue that is affordable for them.
Now Maggies and owner Ziggy are desperate for help in finding somewhere they can move to but that is also easy for local people to reach.
If somewhere is not found within weeks then the unthinkable will have to happen and Maggy’s could be no more.
