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.
