High Wycombe will open in spring 2015 and will include gardening. Solihull will be 4,500sq m, while Sheffield will be almost 4,000sq m. At Sheffield, the Next fashion offer is in a different store in the Meadowhall shopping mall.

A Next representative said: "Others are still going through planning. We're always planning but some get knocked back. We're still looking to open more and will do because they are doing well."

Next Home & Garden opened new stores in Bristol in April and Hedge End, Southampton, in July. It trialled a store in Shoreham, West Sussex, in 2011 and has since developed stores at Camberley, Surrey, Ipswich, Warrington and Wilmslow.

Some 80,000sq m of retail space is planned to be dedicated to new Home & Garden stores with a further 18 possibly on the cards. Sally Hancock is the new garden buyer for the stores.
