Construction has begun on a new Next store at Gloucester Retail Park.

It will be the first of Next’s “dual-format” stores in the South West of England, including two mezzanine floors, covering 28,000 sqft, plus a cafe.

Furniture and homeware will be on offer as well as clothing.

Mark Whittaker, Group Property Director at Peel Land and Property, who own and manage Peel Retail Parks, said: “We’re pleased to confirm work has started on this exciting new project for Gloucester Retail Park, which is Next’s very latest design and will be a significantly high profile building for the city, attracting more shoppers to Gloucester”.
