FASHIONISTAS and homeware lovers will want to be first in line when the new Next opens at intu Merry Hill next week.

As part of Tuesday's opening celebrations, the first 25 people to enter the store will receive a golden envelope containing gift cards.

The value of the vouchers will range from £5 to £100 and can be spent in the new-look store, which will house a Costa Coffee and stock lines from Lipsy.

Robert Pickersgill, the Brierley Hill shopping centre's marketing manager, said: “The highly anticipated new Next store will be one of the biggest in the UK.

"We’re looking forward to opening the doors and showing our customers exactly what’s inside.

“There’s something for everyone with a wide range of fashion, homeware and even a Costa Coffee for those needing some time to relax in-between shopping.”

The store, which has taken over the old Sainsbury’s unit, will open at 10am.
