Next to open beauty stores in former Intu Debenhams branches

Next is taking over former Debenhams space in three Intu malls

Fashion giant Next has signed deals with retail property group Intu to open new-concept beauty halls.

Next will open the shops, which will also carry home and women’s fashion lines, in former Debenhams branches in Intu’s malls in Gateshead’s Metrocentre, Milton Keynes and Watford.

While some retailers have scaled back their store estates and are suffering heavily following the coronavirus lockdown, Next has been a strong performer and is taking the opportunity to build its business further.
