UK fashion and home retailer NEXT has signed a new 10-year lease with Trafford Centre to create a large, new store, expected to open in November 2022. The new store will significantly upsize the brand’s presence in the centre, bringing its fashion, beauty and home offering together in a single 65,000 sq ft store.
Rhys Evans, Director of Asset Management at Pradera Lateral, said: “This is a significant signing for us and an exciting step for everyone involved. The deal represents a true partnership between Trafford Centre and NEXT whereby both parties will be working together to create an exceptional shopping environment. The new store will dramatically increase NEXT’s presence and impact on the mall and provide a seamless customer experience.”
Mike Barrow, Area Manager at NEXT, said: “At NEXT we are excited to be able to bring all of our products together in one destination within the Trafford Centre. This is a really exciting opportunity for NEXT and will ensure we are able to provide a better product offering and, more importantly, the best customer service within Trafford Centre.”
