Newcastle Next flagship set for 12 May opening
The timescale may have slipped a little from the original April target – which is still being proclaimed by the external hoardings – but I understand that Next is now expecting to open its 55,000 sq ft Newcastle flagship store on or around Thursday 12 May.
I dropped by to check on progress yesterday morning, and the biggest change from my last update in February is the addition of the Next signage to the Blackett Street elevation.
From the outside, it does still look like there’s quite a lot of work to be wrapped up over the next four weeks. However, the huge lettering means that no-one has any excuse for not being aware that Next is on its way.
