The brand new branch of ' Next Home and Garden' has opened in Martlesham.


A NEW superstore in Martlesham is today offering customers the chance to win a host of prizes to celebrate opening its doors to shoppers.

Next’s Home and Garden store at Beardmore Park, Martlesham Heath – the second largest shop of its kind in the UK – offers both green-fingered enthusiasts and fashionistas the chance to shop under one roof.

Creating 220 new jobs, the store has everything Next offers, on a “gigantic scale” – with women’s, men’s and children’s clothing and home collections as well as DIY and garden products.

A Next spokesman said: “We are really pleased with how the Martlesham Heath store looks, it is full of everything from your fashion favourites to DIY and garden products and we hope it brings a whole new dimension to the way people shop at Next.”

This weekend the store is offering shoppers another chance to win prizes worth more than £200 by spending £40 or more in store, subject to terms and conditions.

And the promotions will continue on Saturday and Sunday, July 7 and 8, with bathroom and bedding products up for grabs.

  • With no surprise to me, you offer a LUDICROUS poll which allows people to choose only from 5 options; there will be many more types of shop people want to see that are not shown. So the poll is pointless. So i decided to give you a ridiculous vote ... "more shoe shops" .... as if we needed them! But, again at no surprise to me, your poll shows votes only for the first two options .... clearly it is not working (unless, but very unlikely, you have had hundreds of votes ... and all for the first two options only) ..... so the poll is ludicrous, hopeless and a waste of time. Now why is it that I am not surprised?

It’s a place with tragedy and mystery in its past – but as many stories of resilient determination to build a community amid its wild and isolated environment.
