New Store Could Occupy PC World Premises

Wednesday September 18 2013




THE town's PC World could be making way for a new B&M Bargains store.

An application has been submitted to Barnsley Council on behalf of the retailer to move to the store on Harborough Hills.

The discount store has seen a rapid growth in the last few years and, according to its application, wants to sell DIY goods, carpets and gardening tools.

Mark Wood, of MWA, which has submitted the application, said 40 new jobs would also be created for local people.

Mr Wood said PC World wants to offload some of its stores and the location was suitable for B&M's expansion.

Whenever I go to B&M I always come out with something I didn't know I wanted or needed, but it's always a bargain.

PC World and Currys merged years ago, so as there is a 'Currys PC World' just over the road on the retail park, you don't have far to travel for that. Makes me then wonder whats going to happen to B&M at Stairfoot, and if all the staff will transfer?

I wouldn't wonder too much, I think there is scope for two B&M stores in Barnsley

Never been to the one at stairfoot as its too much messing about on bus.would be better if we had one in town center like the one at sheffield.easier for a lot of people yo get to.

Curry's is useless for computing stuff. They carry very little stock and their knowledge isn't great either. I'd rather have one b&m and one pc world. Seems silly to close a shop to duplicate another

Fantastic!
Another scratters shop on one of the gateway routes into town.
