Next store to open on Thursday


A major fashion retail store will open in Evesham on Thursday 14th August 2008, creating more than 25 new jobs for local people. The Next store has been constructed opposite Tesco on Worcester Road and is set to open at 10am. The store which will sell mens, womens and childrens clothing as well as homeware occupies almost 10,000 square feet of trading space.

Evesham market town partnership manager Lew Hammond sees this as a positive move for the local job market.

“The good thing is that companies such as next obviously see Evesham as an ideal location for their business,” he told the Evesham Journal.

According to Next, the store will provide a modern environment for people starting their new jobs in retail.

Lucy Taylor, public relations officer for Next, told the newspaper: “The store has a fresh look which encompasses a stylish logo and striking contemporary interior design concept.”
