NEXT has signed a 10-year lease for a new 28,000 sq ft flagship location at St. Enoch shopping centre in Glasgow.

Glasgow’s largest shopping centre, St. Enoch, is experiencing a renaissance thanks to a £40 million repurposing of the former BHS department store, helping bring retail, dining and leisure under one roof.

NEXT is set to open its doors this October, strengthening St. Enoch reputation in the local area as a vibrant, go-to destination. The new 28,000 sq ft space in Argyle Street was formerly a Topshop store.

A spokesperson for NEXT said: "NEXT are excited to be joining St. Enoch and being back on Argyle Street after leaving it last year. We look forward to showcasing our latest Autumn/Winter ranges in Scotland’s fashion capital with a planned opening in October."

Matt Elgey, Senior Asset Manager at Sovereign Centros, commented: "The arrival of NEXT boosts St. Enoch’s position as the epicentre for retail and leisure within Glasgow city centre and will complement our exciting occupier line up."

St. Enoch Centre is located in Glasgow's city centre, one of the UK's top shopping destinations outside London. It’s one of the most visited shopping centres in the UK, with 20 million visitors a year.

Women’s jeweller Pandora is also set to open next month at St. Enoch's.

This is not the first retail destination that NEXT has previously exited and is now returning to - the retailer is also set to make its return to Gloucester Quays, the outlet and dining destination in the South West. The move comes after a 'record breaking' 2022 sales period for the destination.

In contrast, NEXT recently closed its doors in East London's Westfield Stratford shopping centre. The store has been closed since Friday 17 February, with store signage informing customers that they can still shop with the brand online.
