A Next clothing store which will open in mid February has created almost 30 jobs.

The store, which will be in the former Comet unit at the Tollgate Retail Park adjacent to the existing Next At Home store, is set to open on February 20.

It will stock men’s, women’s and children’s clothes and include separate areas for lingerie, tailoring, petite sizes and shoes.

The current Next at Home store will also expand slightly meaning the total floor size will almost double to 24,054sq ft.

Twenty-eight people have already been hired to work at the store and are currently in training.
