After much anticipation, a popular chain store opened its doors for the first time after moving into the former Toys R Us building at the weekend.
Staff at B&M, Horns Road, Newbury Park welcomed residents into the shop on Saturday, August 31 alongside the Mayor of Redbridge, Councillor Zulfiqar Hussain.
The move to the borough created 50 jobs and employees chose Redbridge charity Uniting Friends to support throughout the year.
The voluntary organisation which operates out of Beehive Lane, Redbridge, provides opportunities for people with learning disabilities and encourages them to take part in social and educational activities, and develop skills along the way
After opening the doors, the charity was given £250 to spend in the shop.
