A big high street retailer has revealed the exact date it is set to open a brand-new store in Kidderminster. 

B&M said it will move into the former Debenhams building at Slingfield Mill, part of Weavers Wharf retail park, this year after signing a lease agreement with commercial property and investment company LCP. 

The discount chain has now officially announced that the new store is set to open on Thursday, May 30. 

As part of the move, the store also confirmed that the B&M located at 1-6 St Georges Mall in the Swan Centre will also be closing to make way for the new shop. 

The Swan Centre store is currently set to close on Saturday, May 24. 

A spokesperson for B&M said: "The B&M Kidderminster store is moving from its current location at 1-6 St Georges Mall to its new home at Slingfield Mill. We apologise for any inconvenience caused while we bring you a bigger and better B&M store. 

"The current B&M Kidderminster store will close on Saturday, May 24 and the brand-new B&M Kidderminster at Slingfield Mill is currently scheduled to open on Thursday, May 30." 

The former Debenhams shop closed for good back in 2020 with LCP purchasing Weaver's Wharf last year with the aim of attracting good-quality brands to the retail park and boosting jobs.

In reaction to the lease agreement with B&M, a spokesperson for LCP said: "We are delighted to announce that a 30,000 sq ft B&M store will be joining M&S, Next, TK Maxx, Boots, New Look, and Matalan at M Park Weavers Wharf this spring.

"The store will be joining us on a 10-year lease and will be a fantastic addition to the retail offering already available." 

B&M has also confirmed that the store in Spennells is set to remain open.
