B&M coming to Aldridge – vacancies now being advertised

Untitled 9

Imagery from Bing! Maps is so old it shows the building still operating as Focus… Imagery from Bing! Maps.

Ever since I posted that B&M were moving into the old Focus DIY store on Northgate, between Aldridge and Walsall Wood, I’ve been contacted by people either swearing it will be an Asda (nope) or doubting what I said – well, work has continued on the empty building and it’s now in B&M colours, and vacancies have now been posted for a ‘new Aldridge store’ on the B&M website.

I post the links here as I know a few readers will be interested. There are few enough new jobs here these days, and anything I can post that may help is always a positive.

You can see the current list of Aldridge job vacancies on the B&M website by clicking here.

Still no sign of when the store is opening as it’s still not made the new stores list which is remarkably busy, but I’d hazard late July. As soon as I hear anything I’ll post it here.

My best wishes to anyone applying, and it’s so good to see a derelict building come back to life again. It’s been empty way too long.

    I hope this isn’t the death knell for the Brownhills store. Two large stores within 2 miles doesn’t seem a good plan, as one will take trade from the other. Would explain why the Brownhills store hasn’t spent anything on sorting out the carpark though…..

    • I don’t think it is, no. There seems to be policy of opening stores closer together and varying the content between the two. The fact that they’re advertising for staff rather than just moving them would seem to support this. As to the car park, B&M don’t own the store or car park, so I guess it’s a landlord issue.

      Cheers
