Next has named Camberley in Surrey as the third location for one of its Home and Garden stores.
The latest branch will be created from a 43,000sq ft former Homebase unit, which is being substantially modernised and extended through the installation of a mezzanine floor.
A spokesperson for Next’s real estate partner, British Land, said the development made “optimum use of the property’s open A1 planning consent and dominant location”. The store is prominently sited on the A30 a mile west of Camberley town centre.
The new Next Home and Garden is due to open this summer, with home products and DIY and garden lines sitting alongside a fashion offer.
Next already has Home and Garden stores in Shoreham, West Sussex, and Ipswich, and the retailer said last September that both had “so far proven successful and have comfortably beaten their targets”.
It said the emphasis was now on continuing to roll out these new stores and that a further 17 could open over the next three to five years.
