The budget home store and garden centre is set to open on November 9.

A NATIONAL budget retailer will be opening a new shop next month in Barnstaple’s former Focus DIY store.

B&M Retail Ltd, recently recognised as one of the top 100 fastest growing private companies in the UK by The Sunday Times, sells a wide variety of branded products at discounted prices at some 300 stores nationwide.

In November last year, a planning application was submitted by NRT Planning on behalf of Threadneedle Property Investors to enable the store’s opening in Coney Avenue.

The B&M store, which is due to open on November 9, will be a home store with a garden centre.
