Next secures ex-Sainsbury’s store for Midlands flagship

Next is to invest in a multi-million pound state-of-the-art new store at Intu Merry Hill as part of the shopping destination’s transformation programme.

The retailer will convert a former Sainsbury’s supermarket at the centre into a 75,680 square store which will be one of its biggest in the UK. In addition to Next fashion brand items, the store will incorporate a Lipsy, full homeware offering and coffee shop when it opens next spring.

Nick Round, regional director at Intu, said: “We will be working closely with Next to build a fantastic space for what will be one of their biggest UK stores.

“Next’s significant investment at Intu Merry Hill reflects our own long term commitment to the centre and the confidence that exists in it as a destination where brands can really flourish. Our plans are to attract even more great brands and create compelling experiences for customers across the West Midlands.”

Several other brands have invested in new space at Intu Merry Hill since Intu took full ownership of the centre last year. JD Sports, Topshop and River Island have all increased the size of their stores while TAG Heuer, Five Guys and Virgin Holidays have all opened stores in recent months.

The centre is also set to welcome a range of new dining and leisure outlets and will be fully refurbished under Intu’s plans to spend £100 million to enhance its retail and leisure mix.
