British discount retailer to create 200 jobs in Scotland

Substantiating the strength of the discount sector, UK's fastest growing discount retailer B&M Stores, which has became a success story in recent times, is adding 200 new jobs in its three outlets in Scotland.

The jobs would include full-time as well as part-time jobs.

B&M offers clothing and footwear, home-furnishing items and a wide range of other items at discounted prices.

The Liverpool-based firm, which became a known entity on high streets north of the Border post acquisition of several former Woolworths stores, has recently launched its outlets in Blantyre and Dunfermline, and is now set to launch a new store at Robroyston in Glasgow, next month.

The company also expanded its North Ayrshire's Stavenston based subsidiary to cater to the rising demand, and also launched a new store in Kirkcaldy in March this year, while others are planned for launch in Scotland by year-end.

B&M has ambitious plans to enhance its network, not only by launching new stores, but also by expanding the existing ones.

The retailer, which launched its first outlet in Blackpool in 1976, tapped rapid growth during economic downturn, and expanded its network to 280 stores with a staff of around 7,000. The 280 stores included around 35 stores to the north of the Border.

B&M is one of the discount retailers who managed to expand and enjoyed bumper sales during recession. The firm expects its sales to grow from 2011's £642 million to £1 billion by 2014.
