TAMWORTH Informed has learned of plans for a giant Next and Next at Home store at Ventura Retail Park with almost 7000 sq. metres of retail space.
The plans will see a combined footprint for the Next and Next at Home brands and incorporate a mezzanine floor featuring a café as part of the company’s new Next Home and Garden format.
The plans, submitted by J.B. Aucott show that the store is to be at the current location of Homebase at Unit 1, next to the new exit on to River Drive.
To facilitate the new store and increased floor space the plans are to extend the retail space in to what is currently the garden area of Homebase and the introduction of a mezzanine floor.
In total the floors pace will increase by 90 sq. metres at ground level and 1329 sq. metres as a mezzanine floor. This is compared to the existing Homebase store.
Seven car parking spaces will also be lost as part of the plans.
