A face-painter will be on hand to transform youngsters into their favourite animals on Saturday.
B&M has created 45 jobs with the new store, which occupies the former Dews Garage site.
The store will stock a wide range of branded and own-label products including toys, food and drink, pet products, health and beauty items, DIY products, furniture, homeware, electricals and garden products.
B&M has recruited staff to fill full and part-time posts with roles ranging from sales assistants to floor manager and cleaners.
The Brighouse store is one of 50 new stores planned for the UK and 19 planned in Germany – where B&M trades under the JA Woll name – during the current financial year.
The retailer already has stores at the Ringway Centre in Huddersfield, Wilton Street in Dewsbury, Huddersfield Road in Elland and at the Pennine Shopping Centre and on Stoney Road in Halifax.
