Store manager Dipak Varsani said: "My team and I are very excited to be launching this amazing new store - the first of its kind for next offering clothing, home, beauty, and welcoming our partner brands Costa Coffee, Victoria's Secret, Bath & Body Works and Mamas & Papas.

"With the loss of John Lewis and Debenhams from Watford, we hope to bring back a bit of the department store experience the town has always enjoyed and deserves."
