British clothing, footwear and home products retailer Next has confirmed that it will be opening a new store at The Friary Guildford in early Autumn.
The new store will be located within the former Topshop unit, which is currently undergoing a full fit-out and refurbishment ahead of its planned opening date later this Summer.
Visitors to The Friary Guildford will be able to purchase items from across the entire Next product range within its new 13,000 sq ft unit, and will add to the diverse range of fashion, homeware and footwear already located at the centre.
Scott Linard, portfolio director at M&G Real Estate, which owns The Friary Guildford, said: “Next has been one of British retail’s real success stories in recent years and we’re so pleased to be welcoming such a well-respected brand to our retail line-up.
“Its decision to launch its new store in our centre can be seen as a major vote of confidence in The Friary Guildford as a retail destination and one that will undoubtedly prove popular with visitors. Our continued focus is on delivering a first-class shopping experience, and by partnering with leading names like Next, this will help to take our centre to a new level.”
