Next to open huge new store within Intu Metrocentre

Next - William Frost Way 725 x 500

The Intu Metrocentre in Gateshead is developing the space left by the closure of BHS to create a huge new Next store. 

The new store will be one of Next’s biggest, at 85,000 sq ft, and will be nearly double the size of Next’s existing presence in the centre. 

The Next Home store in the adjacent retail park will continue to operate.

Kate Grant, regional director at Intu, said: “This fantastic new space at the heart of Intu Metrocentre will build on the strength of what is already one of Next’s most successful stores, allowing them to attract even more customers and create a number of new jobs.

“It’s a significant investment by Next that alongside our own investment programme and similar expansions by House of Frasier and Primark this year, represents a long-term commitment to Intu Metrocentre and the north east region as a thriving retail destination.”

The new store is expected to open in 2018.
