Next resumes selling online following ‘extensive’ safety measures

Next Eldon Square large

Next has resumed selling online this morning less than three weeks after temporarily closing its ecommerce, warehouse and distribution operations amid the coronavirus crisis.

The fashion giant said it has “implemented very extensive additional safety measures” after consulting with its staff and unions and had “successfully tested opening and taking a limited number of orders” over the Easter weekend.

Next said it was relaunching its transactional website “in a very limited way” this morning, with categories that “customers most need”, including childrenswear and homeware, initially offered.

The retailer said more ranges “may be added at a later date”.
