NEXT set to return to Gloucester Quays outlet following improved sales period
NEXT is to make its return to Gloucester Quays, the outlet and dining destination in the South West. Set to welcome the retail giant later this spring, the news follows a 'record breaking' 2022 sales period for the destination.
NEXT is set to open a 10,441 sq ft store, featuring its clearance collections across women’s, men’s, and children’s fashion. The store will also stock a small range of clearance items from other brands the company offers, including Gap and Joules.
Homeware, beauty products, and its range of footwear will also be on offer in a small area of the store.
The multinational British retailer has over 700 stores worldwide, and the news of its return to Gloucester Quays follows recent announcements that the retailer is seeking to boost the sale of third-party fashion brands. The Gloucester Quays outlet store will work in conjunction with the full-price store at the adjacent Gloucester Retail Park.
Paul Carter, Asset Director at Peel L&P, commented: “We are proud of Gloucester Quays’ continued success across retail, F&B and community sectors. NEXT is an iconic British retailer, and its return is indicative of this continued upward momentum at the outlet. We are hugely excited to welcome them back, and feel confident that Gloucester Quays visitors will enjoy the retail experience that NEXT has to offer.”
Judi Bowers, Area Manager for NEXT Gloucester Quays, added: “NEXT is committed to evolving with the times and customer demand, and taking space in key outlet locations like Gloucester Quays, with its impressive selection of retail tenants, is central to this commitment. We are looking forward to opening the doors to our new home in the coming months, as we continue to deliver our signature premier shopping experience.”
Yesterday, Gap Inc made another of its brands – this time activewear line Athleta – available to shoppers in the UK and Ireland as part of its joint venture deal with NEXT.
