Next moving to larger Newry store at The Quays

Fashion retailer Next has announced it will move into The Quays shopping centre in Newry, doubling its store size to 27,000 sq ft.

The new two-storey store will open in May in the retail hub's 'Phase 5' development beside Marks and Spencer and PureGym, which opened new units 12 months ago. Next will continue to trade from its existing premises at the shopping centre until then.

Colin Mathewson, senior director at letting agents CBRE said: "This commitment from Next, following the recent opening by Marks and Spencer, further cements The Quays' dominant position within the city and is a fantastic achievement in the current retail environment.

"In addition, we soon hope to be in a position to announce a new occupier at the current Next unit, which will be another positive move for the scheme."
