The ‘Next’ Big Thing

Edinburgh’s Largest ‘Next’ Store is to open in Straiton in time for Christmas.

The new ‘Next/Next Home’ store will open at 10am on Thursday 29 November in Straiton Retail Park and will become Edinburgh’s largest ‘Next’ store.

The new store has a gigantic floor space of 26,628 sq.ft with over 11,000sq.ft being dedicated to home products. This 11,000 square feet is larger than most individual next home stores let alone one that shares another 14,000sq.ft with a fashion department. Their new home ‘store’ will offer even more products than before, such as a wider furniture selection for both upstairs and downstairs, kitchen accessories ranging from dinner sets to appliances and decorative bed sets ready to be placed on made to measure bedrooms all offered in-store. The amount of home products available has led to the store having the biggest Next Home offering in the east of Scotland. Customers will be able to take advantage of new services too, such as made to measure products like curtains and blinds and the Home Design Consultant service. The service is a one-to-one service that provides not only inspiring ideas but practical too, which can really transform a house to a home. Not only available in-store, the home design consultant can come to your home for a small fee and work out a unique design with the mood boards, a room scheme and complete itemised list.

There will be a brand new fashion department offering womens, mens and children’s clothing, bringing with it those all important Christmas party outfits for the busy festive period. Other new features to the store include a luxurious new lingerie room and a shoe room not only for women and but men too.

The new store will be open even longer from 9am-9pm Monday to Friday, 9am-7pm Saturday and 10am-6pm on Sunday.

To celebrate its opening Next are giving the first 100 customers a chance to win a £50 Next gift card in the infamous golden ticket competition. Just be one of the first 100 customers to walk through the doors on the opening day and you could win this fantastic prize. Plus if that wasn’t enough, from Thursday 29th November to Sunday 2nd December customers who spend over £75 in-store and fill out an entry leaflet will have the chance to win over £500 worth of Next Home products in the Make A House A Home Competition!

The old store will close on Sunday 25th November to allow transition time between the two stores.
