B&M is closing another store TODAY leaving customers just hours to shop before it shuts… so is it near YOU?
- The major retailer announced last month it is closing a number of stores in May
B&M is closing another store today, meaning customers have just a few hours to bag bargains before its doors shut for the final time.
The store on Saddler Street in Bishop Auckland, County Durham, is open today until 5pm and has apologised for the ‘inconvenience’ caused to customers.
As a result, customers in the area will need to travel two miles to their next closest B&M store in Shildon.
The closure comes as the major retailer announced last month it would be closing stores across the UK in May – despite a ‘very good performance’ over the Christmas period with revenue increasing by almost an eighth.

This comes as the latest blow to High Street shops as big-name brands such as M&Co, Marks & Spencer and Clintons have also announced recent closures.
A B&M store in Widnes, Cheshire will shut on Wednesday, May 17, moving to a new location in the same town before it reopens on Wednesday, May 24.
B&M released the following statement on their website: ‘Your B&M Widnes store is moving from its current location at Bowers Retail Park to its new home at Widnes Trade Park (formerly The Range).’
‘We apologise for any inconvenience caused while we bring you a bigger and better B&M store.’
The chain’s Burnden Retail Park store in Bolton, Greater Manchester will also close for good on May 24.
However, shoppers will still be able to visit a nearby B&M, with another branch located in close proximity on Manchester Road.
The chain has shut down five of its stores already in 2023, including:
- Castlegate Shopping Centre, Stockton – February 25
- Maesglas Retail Park, Newport, Wales – March 4
- Boucher Road, Belfast – March 26
- Queens Drive Retail Park, Kilmarnock – March 26
- Broadwalk Shopping Centre, Bristol – March 29
