B&M Bargains Products
B&M Bargains stocks a huge range of products, as a variety store. Their aim is to stock everything the average customer could possibly want, as cheaply and for as good a value as they possibly can.
These products include:
The B&M clearance sale: where their already impressive value for money is made even more eye-wateringly stark. Seasonal items like Summer and Gardening, Back to School, Christmas, Halloween, Easter, Springtime, and New Year are placed into clearance after the event or season, reducing their price even further. The clearance sale is the place where you’ll find the best B&M bargains, and perhaps the best bargains in the entire world.
Summer and Gardening
This section involves anything you’d need to make your garden a thing of beauty this summer. Fancy a barbecue? You can, B&M has everything you could possibly need. It’s a one-stop shop. More after chilling on a sun lounger, with sunscreen so as not to get burnt, and a great book to read? B&M has that too. When the sun goes down, you can enjoy their patio heaters and chimineas, or retreat into a B&M tent. Smashing.
Back to School
It’s that time of year, and as much as we’re all dreading it, there’s nothing we can do to stop it. The school year has returned. With it, suddenly we all need to be buying school uniforms and their millions of accessories, pens, pencils, erasers, notebooks, rulers, protractors and other graphical equipment, calculators, lunch boxes and backpacks. Luckily, every single one of these items, along with heaps of back to school essentials that I haven’t named, can be found in B&M bargains for extremely affordable prices.
When it comes time to outfit your little monsters in preparation for getting them back to school, no place has a wider product range or better pricing than B&M Bargains.
Home and Living
Outfitting a living space can be tough, but with B&M bargains, it doesn’t have to be hell. The Home and Living section of any B&M store has a wide range of domestic game-changers, from clever, innovative space-saving solutions in storage space and shelving, to soft furnishings and bedding that can turn any room into a comfortable, cosy haven. The “kitchens” section contains all the gear you’ll need to run your own five-star kitchen, with everyday essentials like cutlery and high-quality cooking knives interspersed with more exotic and specialised equipment like juicers, food processors, waffle irons, griddles, rotisserie cookers, and slow-cookers.
Meanwhile, the bathrooms section provides all the towels, linens, shower curtains, bathroom furniture, and accessories you could possibly need for a welcoming, pristine and comfortable bathroom.
For special occasions, there’s even the wedding and party section, which provides all the equipment and materials you’d need to throw a party that no-one will forget. From decorations to paper plates, plastic cups to punch-bowls and optics, B&M bargains can provide everything you need to be the host with the most.
If it plugs into the wall or runs on batteries, B&M stock it – for a great price. Starting in the kitchen, B&M can provide you with a kettle, toaster, food processor, a microwave and an iron, and can do it all without breaking the bank. You’ll also be able to get floor care machinery like vacuum cleaners and even polishers, so you’re sure to be able to find what you need there.
Moving to other rooms, B&M can provide you with everything you need for a great entertainment system – from the TV to the mount it is secured to, to the speakers that provide the excellent sound and the accessories to keep it at the top of the range. They also stock tablet accessories and add-ons, PC electrics such as desk fans and USB sticks, to keep your personal information lifeline running and your keys typing, and health and beauty electrics like hair curling tongs, epilators and hair dryers – because when you look good, you feel good!
The furniture department at B&M is extensive enough to be divided into different rooms, and could easily outfit an entire house!
When it comes to bedrooms, B&M can provide bed frames, mattresses and bedding, night stands, lamps and lighting, bookshelves, dressers, wardrobes and chests of drawers, as well as more stylish items like rugs and trunks.
In the bathroom, they can provide shelves and storage, towel racks, radiator racks and bath mats, along with toilet brushes and other hygiene and cleanliness necessities.
The living room can be furnished with a B&M sofa or armchair, footstools, coffee tables, bookshelves, TVs and TV stands, sound systems, throws, curtains, and rails, while a home office or library can be filled with a B&M desk, computer with accessories, a desk chair or comfortable writer’s chair, a reading lamp or soft lighting and an authentic wooden bookcase to fill with all your favourite books.
Toys and Games
Not to be outdone on toys either, B&M bargains stocks both indoor and outdoor toys. For bright sunny days, kids can enjoy a scooter, bike or skateboard, and other ride-on toys, or jump to their hearts content on a trampoline or pogo stick. They can take their best penalty shots with B&M footballs into B&M football nets, while B&M tennis sets and golf gear keeps the less football-minded happy.
Indoors, action figures and dolls abound, with animal and dinosaur sets, remote-control cars and even fliers like RC helicopters and planes to keep the kids (and the adults!) laughing out loud and running around in pursuit of their new toy.
Fancy dress clothing gets its own section, as do board games and puzzles, with creative kids able to find everything they could ever want in the kid’s Craft section and little film buffs finding their feet at the Kids DVDs section.
The right tool for the right job, as the experts at B&M, would tell you. Being equipped right can make even the most daunting tasks easy, and there’s no task too daunting for the B&M bargains DIY arsenal. From drills, saws, hammers, and planes to wallpaper, paint, plaster and lightbulbs, B&M is ready to help you take on the task.
You’ll be able to get supplies like paint and plaster for a stunningly low price at B&M, and the tools you’ll be buying don’t compromise on quality as the cost goes down.
We all love our furry (or feathered, or scaly) friends, but caring for them right can be expensive. Of course, you can’t compromise on the quality of their care, but you can find smart prices for the things you need – like the prices in the Pets section of B&M bargains. You’ll be able to find dog food, cat food, grooming supplies, litter, collars and leads, transportation, toys, bowls, bedding and mats, and treats there for rock-bottom prices. What’s more, you’ll also be able to find anything you need to care for birds, fish, small pets like mice and gerbils, and more exotic fare like leopard geckoes or alligators.
Food and Drink
We all like to eat well, and that shouldn’t cost a fortune – B&M are there to make sure of that. For B&M’s trademark low prices, you can buy any of the daily essentials like bread, milk, eggs and pasta, plus the added luxuries like hot chocolate powder and biscuits. American-style sweets and candies, cereals, canned goods and fresh food – you name it, B&M stock it.
In the drinks section, you can find all your favourite cans, bottles, and cartons, from red and white wine and prosecco, to Guinness, Stella Artois and Fosters. Soft beverages include Coke (both diet and full-fat) and classics like Lilt, Um Bongo, and Capri Sun.
Sports and Leisure
From camping and travel accessories to cycling, hiking and exploring. From football to cricket, archery to wrestling and frisbee to the big night in, all your athletic and fun needs are cared for in B&M bargains’ sports and leisure department. With their new nutrition subset, even your energy drinks, sports nutrition bars, and protein powders can come at a low, low cost, providing you real value and keeping you in tip-top shape for less!
From the office essentials like pens, pencils, notepads, filing and diaries to colouring-in, kid’s stationery and backpacks, glues and tapes, postage and mailing and the all-important birthday cards and greeting cards, the B&M bargains stationery section has everything you could possibly need to keep scribbling away and keep your life in order.
Clothing and Footwear
Specialising in footwear, this section of B&M has dedicated sections for men, women, children and babies, and also stocks kids swimwear, accessories, and essentials like umbrellas and raincoats!

Between health and beauty, skincare, hair care, and toiletries, the B&M health and beauty section has everything you need to look and feel fantastic. You’ll be able to buy makeup that doesn’t break the bank, along with shampoos and conditioners tailored to every sort of hair and every style and requirement. Brittle, dry or thin hair can be cared for with the right shampoos and conditioners; thick, greasy or frizzy hair can be brought under control and made to look gorgeous!
B&M also stocks soaps, acne creams, and makeup removers to keep your skin clear and smooth, and stocks moisturisers, exfoliators and creams to avoid dry skin, flaky skin or cracking. After that, the B&M perfumes and aftershaves will keep you smelling great, and the razors, tweezers, clippers and massagers will keep you groomed and beautiful!
Toiletries, sugar, painkillers, teabags, cleaning products, toilet paper, sponges, canned goods… The Everyday Essentials are a range designed to provide you with the things you need to live, day to day, for as great a price as possible.
And far more in-store!

B&M currently has 500 stores and over 22,500 employees – many of which are dedicated staff looking at a career, not just a job. The company prides itself on being family run, and puts its emphasis on speed, fun, and customer satisfaction, always trying to, in their words, “preserve the feel of a family-run business that cares for its staff and its customers.”
Always expanding, B&M bargains is now looking for dynamic, outgoing individuals who are driven, have great work ethic and will bring something special to their team – people who have “great leadership skills” and a “passion for success.”
Retail experts are always in demand – that much is certain – but for each one to find a store or chain that they want to stay with takes more than just filling that demand. B&M have stated on their website and in job search websites that they look to be a sort of family to their staff, taking care of them and trusting that the staff will do the same. In today’s first-come-first-employed, disposable retail environment, with its 0-hour contracts and minimal legislation to prevent the corporate bad behaviour, that cares for staff and sense of community well-being among B&M stores, if it exists at all in practice, is a rare and precious thing.
If you think you fit the mold described above, of an active, go-getting, ambitious, hardworking, caring, sharper-than-the-average-tool person, who loves to do a job well and wants a caring work environment, you may be one of the people that B&M is looking for – and you could have a career waiting for you there. In which case, what’s stopping you from applying?
A Brief History of B&M Bargains
B&M bargains came into being in 1978, as the culmination of ideas and work brought together by Malcolm Billington. Originally named “Billington and Mayman”, the first store opened in Cleveleys, Lancashire, in December of that year and worked steadily onwards towards greater and greater successes, until being acquired by Simon and Bobby Arora, two farsighted investments experts from brokerage firm Phildrew Investments in December 2004.
The company immediately began to expand, and saw phenomenal growth, particularly in 2006 when it successfully acquired and assimilated the formerly GlynWebb chain store “Do It Yourself (DIY)”, building up and opening the very first B&M Homestores from their ashes. The company also acquired and absorbed a number of stores and assets formerly belonging to Kwik Save, Woolworths, and Au-Naturale, which had all folded that year or in the years immediately previous, leaving them open to consumption by a more successful, growing business like B&M. With the infrastructure there at the ready, the company could use them to grow at a lightning pace, building up where they left off.
By 2010, the business was so large and sprawling that the head offices needed to relocate to larger, customer built facilities, and a new office and specially-built 620,000sq ft distribution centre were opened in Speke, Liverpool. With it came new operations directors, new finance managers, and new logistics directors, joining the increasingly far-reaching company in 2011.
B&Ms conquest of rival budget DIY stores continued into May 2011, when it purchased a number of Focus DIY stores before converting them into B&Ms, ultimately leading to one of the world’s foremost private equity funds taking a significant share of B&M in 2012.
That firm was Clayton, Dubilier, and Rice, and in December of 2012 they took over a significant stake’s worth of shares, installing Sir Terry Leahy and Vindi Banga on the B&M board of directors.
In MArch 2014, the company itself took over the majority stake in the German discount retailer JA Woll, before immediately opening another 500,000 sq ft distribution centre in Speke, this one designed to distribute internationally.
From there, it has grown incredibly. In July 2015, B&M bargains opened its 450th store, and shortly thereafter, in March 2016, the business’ 500th store opened its doors. Whatever the future may hold for B&M bargains, it looks very bright indeed.
