A Norwich bargain store will reopen this week following an expansion.

B&M at Riverside Retail Park has almost completed its makeover to create a "bigger and better store". 

Having absorbed the former Outfit store next door, the new B&M will have doubled in size to over 32,000sqft.

B&M has revealed the renovation came following feedback from customers saying they wanted a bigger store.

The store closed on Sunday for the final phase of refurbishment.

The new store will also create 20 more jobs.
