NEXT store at Derbion set for transformation.

Derby’s best-loved retail and leisure destination, Derbion, has announced that its NEXT store is set for a significant investment.

Published on 07/04/2022

The popular UK fashion and homeware retailer is making a substantial investment in the store to deliver a number of exciting and physical changes that will enhance its offer for shoppers. Work to the new and improved store will begin in June, with the improvements set to be completed by mid-August.

The refreshed store will include a brand-new entrance, all-new interior features and lighting, as well as the arrival of premium lifestyle care products from Bath and Body Works. Located on Level 2 within NEXT, Bath and Body Works will offer shoppers the chance to discover luxurious skincare, bodycare and gifts.

What’s more, NEXT at Derbion offers free one-to-one personal styling sessions, to help shoppers discover clothes and accessories that are perfect for special occasions, as well as seasonal wardrobe staples. The NEXT store at Derbion was one of the first in the UK to launch this service, and is now available to book online for both womenswear and menswear via this link

The announcement follows a string of investments from retailers at Derbion, including River Island, The Body Shop, Toy Planet, Superdrug and H. Samuel, who have all recently refreshed their space within the centre. New retailers including FLANNELS and Mango have also enjoyed success at Derbion since opening their doors and Jack Wills and Frasers are set to arrive later this year.

Adam Tamsett, general manager at Derbion, said: “NEXT has always been a big hit with our visitors, so we’re delighted that they’re investing in a refreshed store for shoppers to enjoy.

“We’re confident that the arrival of the Bath and Body Works will also be exceptionally popular with visitors once they open in-store this summer. We have lots of exciting plans for the centre this year and we look forward to announcing more news soon.”

Cathryn Hannath, East Midlands area manager at NEXT, said: “We’re very excited about the upgrading of this store and the addition of Bath and Body Works and look forward to our customers enjoying their shopping experience with us.”
