Castle Acres Shopping Park in Leicester will be on the Everards Brewery next to Fosse Shopping Park.

The new retail development will provide around 32,243 sqm of floorspace, providing 26 new outlets for a wide range of national retailers, including space for complementary restaurants and cafés.

All of the retailers will also have mezzanines. Next’s aspiration is to consolidate its two Fosse Shopping Park stores – Next and Next Home – onto the vacated brewery site to create a new  9,000sqm store over three storeys.

The layout provides parking for over 800 cars, include 33 dedicated wheelchair bays and 12 parent/child spaces.

Next Home & Garden started in 2011 and has stores at High Wycombe,  Solihull, Sheffield, Southampton, Shoreham, Camberley, Ipswich, Bristol, Warrington and Wilmslow.

A Hull centre is in planning for opening in 2017. A Plymouth centre has yet to reach the planning stage.

Next has an plan for 20 Home and Garden's and a Next representative said: "Stores are trading really well. They're definitely working for us. They are something we'd look to carry on doing. Things are taking a little bit longer than we'd like with planning but hopefully we'll get there in the end."
