Dozens of jobs have been created at a newly-opened shop in Kettering’s High Street this week.
B&M Bargains held its official opening on Wednesday morning.
The unit was the former home of QD Stores, which closed earlier this year.
The store was opened by Kettering mayor Duncan Bain alongside Debbie Grant from Cransley Hospice.
Store manager Andy Riddell presented Debbie with £250-worth of B&M vouchers to purchase improvements for the hospice as a thank-you for her help in opening the shop.
B&M already has another store in the town, in Carina Road on the Kettering Retail Park.
The new High Street store is thought to have created more than 50 jobs.
