B&M is to shut down 49 of its stores across the country in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.
49 of its branches will be temporarily closing down, as the budget retailer deals with the current situation.
Don’t panic if you can’t live without your B&M fix, though, as the retailer has 656 stores in the UK so there’ll still be a few open.
The stores that are shutting are usually smaller ones in shopping centres, with 42 of the 49 that are closing located near to larger stores anyway, according to B&M.
It decided to keep all of its stores open initially so people could get groceries and other household items, but has now decided to shut some branches after reviewing its operations.
Staff at the affected stores will be furloughed under the UK’s job retention scheme, with the government covering 80% of their wages.
B&M hasn’t released a list of the stores which are closing, so your best bet is to contact your local branch beforehand to make sure it’s open.
You can get a litre of Baileys for just a tenner at supermarkets this weekend
You’ll have to be quick!
It’s officially the season for Baileys over ice while you watch The Holiday, and who is mad about it?!!
Luckily, this huge Black Friday sale sees some mega deals on booze to be had.
For a very limited time only, Asda stores nationwide will be offering an entire LITRE of Bailey’s for just £10.
Yep, let that sink in.
The unmissable bargain will be running from this Friday, the 19th, to Sunday 22nd November and will definitely be popular so you’ll have to be quick to grab one.
A standard bottle of Baileys will set you back £12 as part of Asda’s rollback price. It normally retails for £20 so even if you miss out on the deal, you’ll still get a whopping 40% off.
If Morrison’s is your closest shop, they’ve also got litre bottles on offer for £12 until November 24th. You’re only allowed to buy one bottle at a time at Morrisons so if you buy a second you will be charged £20 for the second bottle.
Again, Sainsbury’s is doing one bottle per customer on their £12 promotion.
If you are a Tesco Clubcard holder you can also get a litre for £12, if you don’t have a Clubcard it will be £15.

Take my money!
New to Aldi’s festive range this year is the very welcome arrival of BallyCastle White Chocolate flavoured cream liqueur.
The popular BallyCastle Irish Cream range has a new addition and everyone is saying it tastes just like a ‘boozy Milkybar’.
The new tipple will set you back £6.99 and is described as ‘a light yet luxurious cream liqueur with the classic flavour of cocoa butter and cream’.
The supermarket chain promises aromas of buttery vanilla and warming notes of white chocolate throughout.
The liqueur is the perfect addition to your festive drinks cabinet and can be used to make festive cocktails or simply enjoyed over ice.
For the same price, you can also grab the Specially Selected Irish Cream in traditional flavour, or the indulgent Caramel and Hazlenut Liqueur.
You can even add any of the liqueurs to your hot chocolate or vanilla latte to make a sweet boozy hot drink in the cold weather.
If you love hot chocolate this time of year, you might want to jump on the Hot Chocolate Charcuterie Board trend that everyone is loving this year.
