Last Thursday was one of those late summer days that catch us all unawares. Gorgeous blue skies and temperatures we would have liked to have had in mid-July. It was also the day that I boarded the train to Brighton to have a look at the new Next store in Shoreham.
The store is the biggest in the Sussex area and it has everything that Next has to offer all under one roof. As well as the clothes and home collection that we are all familiar with, it has for the first time, DIY and garden products.
The store is massive! It is also very well laid out and gorgeously styled with colour coordinated room sets at every turn.
There is a brand new Dulux paint section, with touch screen colour selectors. A new section with tiles, carpets and flooring and a bathroom section where you can buy a bathtub to take home the same day if you so wish. You might however, prefer to take advantage of the one-to-one design consultancy service instead!
For those of you that do take home the bathtub in the back of the campavan there is a tool section too.
But step outside and you will find everything you need for the garden. From sheds, to furniture, to tools to plants. And it all looks incredibly beautiful and very, very tempting.
I must say I was very impressed. I didn’t come out exactly empty-handed either. What do you think of my new cushions?
