Iconic clothing and home retailer Next has announced the opening of a huge new flagship store in the White Rose Centre.

The chain is investing £6million into converting the former BHS unit into a two-floor store occupying 55,000 sq.ft.

They are relocating from their current, 29,000 sq.ft site in the mall to double their floorspace. Their new store will open in June.

While this autumn, there will be several new arrivals as the centre looks to boost its leisure offering.
