Sunderland was dealt a fantastic hand yesterday with the announcement of 60 new jobs coming to the city.
The positions will become available through the opening of a new B&M store, at the former B&Q site on Ryhope Road.
It is due to open on Saturday, August 6 - but will you be going along?
Yesterday, we asked you what you thought of the news.
Here are some of your comments from social media. You can visit the Sunderland Echo on Facebook here.
John Bloomfield: "Can't understand why people would moan about an empty building coming back in to use and new jobs created. It's all positive for the area surely?"
Jamie William Barker: "Only in Sunderland would people complain about something creating jobs."
Faye Carter: "I hate B&M because I always end up spending way too much haha, but seriously I love the stuff they stock and I also love a bargain too."
Margo Lax: "YES ... my therapy shop. If I'm feeling low, have a good sniff about in B&M ... always find a bargain I didn't know I was looking for."
Stephen Gaze: "I like B&M but it's irrelevant. If it means more jobs then it doesn't matter who the company is."
Eileen Joyce: "Jobs are always good news."
Heather Dobson: "Can't wait, B&M a 10 minute walk away."
Margaret Warren: "Pleased to bits about this. I love B&M."
Vicky Green: "I'm glad there is another B & M at the old B&Q site as living in Leechmere it's a bit of a trek to get to the other two Sunderland B&M stores, hence I don't get to visit that frequently. This store is on my doorstep so I'm going to be in here all the time."
Christine Broad: "Have never been into a B&M but if it's creating new jobs and it means one less empty building then that's fab."
Michael Carr: "Doesn't matter what shop it is as long as it's creating jobs that's the main thing."
