Next has taken over the former BHS store located in Newcastle’s Intu Metrocentre, opening an 85,000 sq ft site for the fashion retailer.
BHS’s former stores have been picked up by other retailers on a piecemeal basis. Mike Ashley’s upmarket womenswear retailer Flannels assumed its Jersey store, while Primark, Poundworld and Fabb Sofas have also taken on shops.
The department store chain collapsed into administration in April this year, following its sale to Retail Acquisitions.
Its collapse is currently the subject of a Serious Fraud Office investigation.
BHS.com was relaunched last month by the buyer of its international and online operations Al Mana Group.
