A new Lichfield B&M store is set to open next week.

Finishing touches are being added to the site at the Imperial Retail Park on Eastern Avenue before it opens on 18th July.

The retailer has taken up two units and will join PureGym, Lidl and Costa on the site.

The new shop is set to create 40 new jobs and a spokesperson for B&M said the opening would not impact the existing store in Lichfield city centre.

“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 spokesperson said.

“We are all really excited to get the doors open and welcome our new customers through the door.”
