On Saturday 24th September, Alan officially opened the new B&Q store in Melton Mowbray. The store, which closed under previous ownership, has secured employment for over 30 people.
New manager David Cook gave Alan a guided tour of the newly refurbished shop and introduced him to some of the new and existing staff. In celebration of the opening, customers entered prize draws and children had their faces painted.
Alan said: ‘I am delighted that B&Q have seized the opportunity to establish its presence in Melton Mowbray. It is always a boost to the local economy when new jobs can be created and existing ones secured and I am happy to welcome B&Q to the area.’
