Next’s impressive splash in Sussex.

Recently I joined other bloggers and magazine editors at the launch of Next’s new flagship store in Shoreham, Sussex. 

The way it was organised right from the beginning should have been an indicator of how things were going to turn out. Next staff together with the PR Company organised one of the best events I’ve ever attended. From train tickets to coffee choices and lunch it all worked like a well oiled machine. 

At the shop I was astounded to see how well laid out it was with even the smallest detail taken into account. Next’s staff are amazing; their training programme must be so well thought through and delivered. I was there again last Sunday and the response I got when questioning some of the staff was simply fantastic. Customer service has been taken to a much higher level. Going to Next in Shoreham is a great shopping experience.

Prices are extremely competitive with other shops if not at times cheaper. I do not have green fingers but luckily am married to someone that is and so we spend a lot of money on flowers; the plants were of high quality and the Christmas trees were just the most beautiful I have ever seen – I had to touch them to make sure they were real.

But that is not all, Next is now selling kitchens, bathrooms, tiles, wallpaper, paint, furniture and so on. Yes you can kit your whole house just from one store, it reminds me of the US and Canada.  

I am truly impressed with the store and mostly with the staff at the front as well as the so called back office for putting together such a lovely event.

Next have been kind enough to donate a prize for me to run a competition.
