The Next retail chain was launched in February 1982 and the first store opened with an exclusive coordinated collection of stylish clothes, shoes and accessories for women. Collections for men, children and the home quickly followed. Next clothes are styled by its in-house design team to offer great style, quality and value for money with a contemporary fashion edge.
Today Next trades from more than 500 stores in the UK and Eire and almost 200 stores in more than 30 countries overseas. Over the last few years several larger format fashion and home stores have opened across the UK
Customers may collect or return items at any of Next stores nationwide should this be more convenient, and a new in-house delivery service has been set up to deliver large Home items with the ability to deliver at weekends. As well as placing orders, customers are able to check their accounts and make payments online.
