Intu secures 75,000-sq ft Next flagship for Merry Hill

Next is to invest in state-of-the-art new store at intu Merry Hill as part of the shopping destination’s transformation programme. Owner intu has worked closely with Next on plans to convert a former Sainsbury’s at the centre into a 75,680-sq ft store which will be one of Next’s biggest in the UK and incorporate a Lipsy branch, full homeware offer and coffee shop when it opens next spring.

A number of other brands have invested in new space at intu Merry Hill since intu took full ownership of the centre last year. JD Sports, Topshop and River Island have all increased the size of their stores while TAG Heuer, Five Guys and Virgin Holidays are among brands to have opened in recent months.

The centre is set to welcome a range of new dining and leisure outlets and will also be fully refurbished under intu’s plans to spend £100m to further enhance its retail and leisure mix.

Nick Round, regional director at intu, said: “Next’s significant investment at intu Merry Hill reflects our own long term commitment to the centre and the confidence that exists in it as a destination where brands can really flourish. Our plans are to attract even more great brands and create compelling experiences for customers across the West Midlands.”
