B&M changes its website for shoppers as it launches home delivery trial

Retailer B&M is a huge hit with UK shoppers looking for a bargain, from garden furniture to toys, games and food and drink, the store has a wide range of products on offer. But until now customers could only browse products from B&M’s online site and had to visit stores to make a purchase – but there was a new update to its website recently.

The company, which opened its first store in the UK in 1978, has now added a home delivery option to its website. This means that for the first time shoppers can buy a number of items from the comfort of their own home, The Mirror reports.

It is believed that there are now hundreds of products available for direct delivery to your home and many items including home and outdoor furniture, electrical appliances and camping essentials are now available for delivery. Previously, select stores offered door-to-door delivery of bulky goods or large pieces of furniture, but you had to go to the store to have it arranged.

The new update will be welcome for some customers, who are eager to buy the bargains from the online store. When visiting the website, any item with an orange van logo next to it will be available for home delivery and you can add it to your basket.

Any items that are not available for home delivery will only be marked “In Store” and you will not be able to add them to your cart to checkout. It should also be noted that B&M charges home delivery and prices depend on the size of your order.

Regular delivery which takes 3-5 working days costs £3.95, medium delivery also takes 3-5 working days and costs £7.95 and large delivery can take just over 7 working days and is priced at £14.95. Currently, deliveries come from five distribution centers that B&M already has in operation.

The retailer is testing the new format, but for now, if you want to grab a bargain from the comfort of your own home, you can. B&M does not currently offer delivery to the following locations; Isle of Man, Isle of Wight, BFPO, Northern Ireland, Channel Islands and Scottish Islands and Highlands.
