Martlesham: Gloster Road came to a standstill on Thursday (21st June) morning as retailer Next opened a brand new store.


The car park was jam-packed as eager and excited shoppers made their way to the superstore which is on the site of the old Focus building at Beardmore Park in Martlesham Heath. This store breaks new ground for Next as it is only the second store of its kind, where green fingered enthusiasts and fashionistas meet under one roof.

The retailer had expected maybe around 100 customers as they opened the doors at 10am but were in fact greeted by over 250 eager shoppers. One Ipswich24 reader, having seen an earlier announcement on our website was moved to comment “I can’t wait to get in there”.

Standing at 52,677sq.ft and creating 220 new jobs, the store has everything Next has to offer on a gigantic scale.

There really is something for everyone as in addition to the usual wide range of clothing for Women, Men, Children there are also the popular Home collections. In addition Next have now added DIY and garden products to their wide range – everything from power drills to coordinating bathroom tiles! So there’s something for the lads and well as the lasses.

Extensive paint range

There’s a brand new paint, flooring and DIY section which forms part of the spacious home improvement department, creating an inspirational shopping destination. Home has expanded, introducing an exciting range of carpets, tiles and flooring. If you want an instant makeover for your bathroom; taps, sinks and even bathtubs may be bought and taken home the same day! In addition there’s the introduction of a kitchen or bathroom planning and fitting service, conservatories and more.

The Home Design Service is a one-to-one service available both in store or with a visit to your home (ask in store for more details).

Avid gardeners are well catered for as there is everything from coloured fence paint to Flymo lawn mowers and watering cans to barbecues. Beautiful plants, flowers and trees as well as planters and garden tools are also available.

Next can be found at Unit 1-3 Beardmore Park, Martlesham Heath, Ipswich IP5 3RX.
