B&M is a famous British discount retail chain that was founded by Malcolm Billington in 1978. The first B&M store was opened in Blackpool. The people whom the company owes its success are the Arora brothers, Simon and Bobby. The brothers bought B&M in December 2004, when the company had only 21 locations in the UK. Under their leadership, the company became one of the fastest growing variety retailers in the UK, with more than 3 million customers per week. Currently, B&M employs around 32,000 people and operates more than 700 locations all around the UK. The company's revenue is consistently increasing and has reached 4 billion pounds in 2021.
Low prices on everyday items
Billington & Mayman was the company's original name, but it was shortened to B&M, which stands for Bargain Madness. The company tried to follow the US Dollar General’s success by selling a wide range of products for relatively low prices. B&M’s range of products consists of food and drinks, toys, pet supplies, sports goods, beauty products, furniture, electronics, and much more. The discount retailer does not have an online shopping option, but you can find everything you need at the physical store near you. As stated on B&M's website, the company also offers a special buy range made up of electricals, toys, indoor furniture, and homeware products.

The company continues to successfully expand its stores all over the UK with the goal of giving their customer the best shopping experience possible.
