Next lands at Gatwick

The biggest Next store at an airport is opening next month in Gatwick’s South Terminal, stocking men’s and women’s ranges, with a focus on summer wear.

Passengers using the 1,850sq ft outlet will be able to take their pick from clothing, accessories, shoes and swimwear as well as business wear.

They will also be able to use Gatwick’s “collect on return” service which allows passengers to take advantage of the tax-free prices without having to take purchases away with them on their trips. 

Those jetting off to hot destinations, for example, can take advantage of airport prices and have clothing more appropriate for the British climate waiting at the airport on their return.

Gatwick chief commercial officer Guy Stephenson said Next’s arrival is in response to its regular surveys which showed the retailer is a shop passengers most wanted to find at the airport. 

It will join Gatwick’s line-up of 35 shops, including Harrods, SuperDry, Jo Malone, Ted Baker and Dixons, and 27 restaurants.

Gatwick also boasts the world’s first airport gin distillery, the Nicholas Culpeper and renowned chef Bruno Loubet’s Grain Store.
