      well worth a look either online/directory or instore

      As everybody probably knows Next comprises 2 major parts - their online/directory part and their retail stores. I have not actually bought much online recently but I do tend to have a good browse and carry out some research on a fairly regular basis because, in my opinion, they are pretty good at keeping up with the latest fashion and home trends.When I used to buy online I was never disappointed with either their goods or their delivery service.

      Due to the recession I do not have anywhere near the disposable income I used to enjoy but luckily my younger daughter works part-time in store which means I get a heads-up on possible reductions and she can claim staff discount if she treats me to anything! She works in the homeware department and in the last year or so I have managed to get a Next toaster and kettle (in a lovely burgundy colour) plus a fab wooden clock for my lounge which were purchased in one of their great sales. My daughter bought me a really unusual duvet set too which, although a cotton mix, looks like it has been knitted. I really like the way that the buyers go for unusual and wacky items that cannot be found elsewhere and makes them well worth looking at for unusual gifts.

      I used to buy clothes for my girls when they were younger and, although they generally cost a bit more than other shops, were generally of a good quality, trendy and long lasting. I used to buy clothes for myself too, especially jeans or suits for work, and found them to be well made although the sizing was not always uniform.

      A friend of mine is expecting twins on Boxing Day and has purchased some fabulous items for newborn boys as well as bedding and other essential items as well as maternity trousers and tops which she loves. The men's department, so I am informed, is usually busy and well stocked with clothes that suit all ages. The fact that the whole family can look for clothes is a bonus and the stores seem easy enough to find what you are looking for without much hassle.

      As far as I am concerned though the best thing Next do is put on a good sale, especially after Christmas and during the summer. If you are a real bargain hunter you will probably set your alarm ready for the 4am start on these chosen days but will be well prepared for the 'survival of the fittest' when it comes to making purchases never likely to be seen again!

      Instore at the moment there are some really unusual Christmas decorations along with stylish cards, tags and wrapping paper which I have my eye on for grabbing in January? I actually cannot wait for the Next winter sale...

      ** when I posted this review it showed up as Next - when posted is shows up at Next Directory?? This is based on my shopping experience at Next!! **

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Highly recommended, much better than George at Asda.

        Next is an excellent fashion store which stocks a very wide variety of apparel for men women and children. I normally get my jeans and shirts there, but occasionally there are low levels of stock so I have to order online and collect in store, or get a delivery. Usually though, they do have good levels of stock, and i can find what I want.

        Their stores are well laid out, and they have quite a good system where they split categories in half across the store, but they build walls between the two with gaps in-between with overhead signs. So rather than have to go round a one way system, you can see whatever you want from wherever you are in the store. Just look for the overhead sign, stand on your tiptoes, and you'll see it, then just head over there.

        The stores are clean and tidy, I do see clothes on the floor sometimes but I cant blame them for that and to be fair, that's customers that just throw them down or knock them off. They don't let tags or stickers build up on the floor though, and even though the one near Langley Mill is being completely re-done, they haven't even let the construction work get in the way of store tidiness.

        The staff are friendly but sometimes incompetent when it comes to online orders. There have been many times where i've gone in store to collect an online order and actually got the wrong order, or they've spent a long time in the back room trying to find it with no explanation why. (Usually it takes less than a minute)

        Prices in the store are competitive to places like New Look but not competitive to the supermarkets, but obviously, Next generally has better quality stuff than supermarkets. The items are all organised well on the shelves and pegs but I have needed to ask staff if they have my size in stock (who hasn't) because they do have extra stock in the back room. The Next skunk works as i like to think of it.

        Overall these guys have a great store and a great service. All round I have a positive experience with them but i highly recommend getting orders online and collecting in store if you want to guarantee you'll get it. Sometimes stock runs low and it's a waste of a trip. Oh and if you accidentally knock something off the shelf, please pick it up, staff don't seem to notice, and clothes on the floor is actually quite common in here.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          offer a good quality product at a reasonable price

          Next are a British high street company which have two main branches- retail business and online/directory business.

          The company specialise in clothes for all ages- but their main target group seems to me a middle management family with young children. Alongside fashion they also offer homeware, and furniture.

          Their clothes are generally priced towards the top end of high street- think Jane Norman, Debenhams etc, but are generally good quality. An average outfit will probably cost you around £40-£50, while childrens clothes seem to retail at £16-£20 per outfit.

          Next stores generally seem to be located on the high street, but more and more they are appearing in out of town shopping centres- particularly their home stores. Their stores vary massively in size- some only offering womenswear, and others offering womens, childrens men and home. Their specialist home stores also generally include samples of their furniture/bathroom ranges.

          Next also run a catalogue business where customers can order by phone or online. They promise goods will be delivered the next working day so long as you order by 9pm- I haven't yet put this to the test though! Their catalogue business seems to contain the majority of what is offered in stores, but also adds in brands.

          Generally I'd say Next are a staple of the highstreet- their clothes are good for all occasions, and they offer good quality. As a family I'm happy to buy our clothes here.

            good all round shop, do not miss the sale its massive and full of bargins!

            I always thought that Next was for 40 somethings, and babies but how wrong was I.

            Im 28 by the way!
            I started using next when I lost a weight before getting married, I walked in during the sale and picked up a pair of jeans I loved those jeans and realised what the term washed like a rag was.

            I then went on to have my baby and baught next babygros and also outfits again and again they looked amazing on my little one. I do think that some of the items can be highly priced but I think they are value for money because they last so long. They always kept their shape.

            The childrens shoes are fab and always are a good fit and a long wearing

            For me I mostly order online and before buying I always read the reviews and all the reviews I have read they have been bang on. I always get my leggings from next and also I love the longline tops and hoodies. I also have had a number of one armed tops which I love. I am always so excited for the next sale because I pick up lots for a bargain.
            The order by nine and get the next day service is always reliable
            The shoes, how I love the shoes, I recently purchased a orange pair of wedges in the sale - £10!

            The home wear is to die for but you need a big bank balance if you want a 'next home' I recently purchased a home sweet home plaque and also wall art silver flowers I often get comments on both.

            Do not miss the sale! I love this shop

            The best High Street Shop on erm, the high street!

            Hi there, My name is Chloe and I am a Next-a-Holic...

            I love Next. I wont deny it and I will happily shout it from the rooftops! I can not praise the brand enough, particularly the childrenswear, which although is not for me personally (obviously) is still my biggest buzz when it comes to Next. The home department is show-home perfect and the womens clothing is always bang on trend and for the most part it's reasonably priced too!

            Being an odd size where my top half is more like a 6 and my bottom half more like a 10, I struggle to find clothes and am therefore fiercely loyal to brands that cater for me. Most people would say I'm lucky with my figure-well they should try finding dresses that suit greenhopper length legs and a torso so narrow you could fit a spaghetti hoop around it. It's no mean feat! That is one of the reasons I enjoy shopping for clothing at Next. I remember the days when my mum used to shop in Next when I was a teenager, I always associated the brand with 'mumsy' clothing. Nothing that would ever be classed as fashionable could come from such a store for myself or for my mum and I never expected to shop there myself 10 years later. BUT in that 10 years Next has developed at an increadable pace, it's rebranded, it's re-trained it's eye for fashion and although the prices have risen the quality of the clothing justifies this. Now when I go to Next, I don't associate it with 'mumsy' types at all but more with Mummies who want to look fashionable and trendy and still look appealing and dare I say it sexy! I don't very often see those 'mumsy' types in the stores anymore-thats not to say there is anything wrong with them, just that I don't think they are the target market Next now aim for.

            The clothes in the womens wear section are always wearable versions of what the likes of Vogue and Elle show every issue. I love fashion but the catwalk stuff?! Oh yes, I'm just going to pop to Tesco for some milk wearing something which would stop traffic-for all the wrong reasons. Next however take these trends and transform them in to key items for my wardrobe-no matter what the season. Chiffon tunics for example-previously chiffon would only be worn in a business style blouse. Next have currently got so many variations of chiffon tunics, dresses and casual shirts that my bank card did a swift dive to the back of my purse with fear! Shoes-another thing Next have not only improved upon, but rocketed in to a hugely competative market place. I'm a shoe girl at heart. Where I struggle with clothes, I make up with shoes. My partner can not begin to understand my passion for these beautiful creations-especially when they take up an entire cupboard space and then are found stored in numerous other places! But wow, the shoes in Next are little gems! I recently purchased a pair of patent peep toe nude coloured heels for a friends wedding (ok so I didn't actually wear them to the wedding but hey, these are an investment because Nude coloured shoes will go with ANY outfit, that why they are Nude). They were very well priced at £38 and I can guarantee they will last and last. The prices compared to other fashion footwear shops is very pleasing to me, especially with my little 'shoe habbit'. I used to average £80 on a pair from other brands but since becoming a mummy this has had to reduce! Next is justifiable in price, style and most important-sizing. They are one of very few brands to provide half sizes for adult women-you can not go wrong and no women will find a pair that wont fit in Next.
            I would say that the only downsize is that Next don't cater enough for smaller sized women, I have as yet been unable to find many items I feel fit me perfectly and make me feel like I'm using my features to the best of their abilities. I do see an improvement though as I regularly see size 6's now in most items in the store-rather than having to order them and then try them for size, I can now try before I buy-like the rest of the planet!

            Like I initially said though, my biggest Next passion is the childrenswear. I get positively excited about shopping for my son in there! I also regularly buy for friends and family members which means I often shop the little girls ranges too which does nothing to help my burning desire for a daughter even though my son is only 11 months old and not quite ready to share the limelight wiht a sibling just yet! The childrenswear is un-matched in my opinion. No other brand offers such fashion and style while matching quality and price. Almost every item my son wears comes from Next. When he was a newborn he wore the baby boy clothing, rompers, cute doggy motifs etc but as soon as he began to transform from a newborn to a toddler that was was my cue-he's a big boy now mummy, time to dress this way. And of course my partner was thrilled because he now wears mini-me clothing! Next means I can kit my son out in cardigan and top 2 piece sets that look like the sort of thing my partner would wear from Big name brands like All Saints etc-it's that particular style that Next match but put there own stamp on that I can't praise them enough for. Jeans tucked in to worn leather look boots-men everywhere have been sporting this look for months and now Next have provided the trend for the little men of the country and I for one am totally excited! The jeans can cost from £9 upwards and a matching hooded top again from £9 up. Ok so the boots a little more expensive at £26 a pair but lets put that in perspective shall we? Clarks charge £30 and upwards for there shoes, so really I'm not grumbling! The matching cardigan and top sets usually cost between £15 and £19 which is a little more than it used to be, but while no where else offers this styling for my son I am happy to pay it. I think their childrenswear department is booming because their prices seem to be reflecting this which is disappointing but being a realist if they now they can charge it-they will. The business way of the world! Anyhoo, back to the clothing! The girls ranges make me a big broody mess everytime I go in! Pretty, fashionable and different. If I had a little girl she too would be kitted out in 99% Next clothing like my son is. They sell 3 piece dress, top and tights sets for usually around £18 which is actually quiet well priced considering each item can be teamed with other clothing to create new outfits too. Again though the recent price increases have been noted but as long as it doesn't jump again I still stand and adore the little pink cardigans with theme trim, the strawberry range which I've recently purchased for my friends daughter, the statement bow tops to match Mummies-the list is endless!

            Then there is the home department which is actually the easiest to sum up. If I won the lottery my entire house would be furnished in Next and adorned with Next decorations, artwork, bed linen etc and my kitchen cupboards would be filled with crockery to match the statement wallpaper...I literally do have to pinch myself when I go through the home book! A little on the pricey side but nothing more than other middle to up market stores on the high street and this seems to be a trend with Next at the moment. They know their popularity is soraing and they want to increase their target market so their prices reflect this. Not complaining though because they are unparralelled in my eyes.

            Then we have the sales. Oh the sales. I live surrounded by Next stores but the biggest is an hours drive so I religiously get up at 4am to be there at 5am on sale days-I have no shame in admitting that! The most recent was this weekend just passed and what a fabulous sale it was. I bought 3 cardigan and top sets, 4 pairs of jeans, 7 tops, 2 polo tops, 2 whole outfits and some sleepwear for my son and saved myself well over £100! The joy of the Next sale is the fact everything is 50% off or more-EVERYTHING! It is by far the best sale I go to and whats more they have 3 a year! Polo tops for £2, 3 pack of tops for £4.50...it's easy to see why the women in there fill 5 bags within a nano second at 5.01 am because everyone loves a bargain and that sale day provides nothing if not the biggest and best bargains. (Take a hard hat though, people are prepared to full on square up to you if you pick up the last pair of strawberry themed jeans in age 2-3 years for £7 instead of £16). Obviously I prepare for the sales by saving like a mad women and having a clear out of all of our stuff, I'm not a Next hoarder you know! But it's always worth it because we are always kitted out in the latest fashions and that makes me feel proud because I take pride in what my son wears and I like to feel good about myself too and this is reflected in what I wear. Courtesy of Next I never fail to dress my little boy like he's graced the cover of the catalogue and for that I get a lovely warm glow (ok so maybe that a bit extreme, I'm not THAT shallow, but I do like him to look good).

            Anyway like I said...I'm Chloe and I'm a Next-A-Holic. It's been.....48 hours or so since I went to Next last and I'm not going to lie here, I will be back by the weekend, just for a little mooch around. But hey, where's the harm?!

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              Great place to shop to guarentee good quality

              I've been shopping at Next for a long time but over the last few years it has become my favourite place to shop. The online facilities are easy to use and show clear and accurate images of items which is more than what can be said for some internet retail sites. The clothes may seem a little overpriced but it really is good quality and therefore good value for money and they always wash and wear very well. The childrens clothes are always up to date and fashionable and there is a wide range of choice to suit all styles. As a taller lady, the Next Tall range is always cut very well and proportioned perfectly to fit the taller stature and has also has a wide choice to choose from. The shoes and handbags i have found to be of high quality and also seem to wear very well.
              The home range is top of the market quality and very fashionable and up to date. I often find that home items come in ranges, which are beautifully designed and also well made.

              My favourite event of the year - the Next sale which provides lots of oppertunity for real bargains.

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              Would recomment to absolutally everyone!

              Having being a lets say 'more than regular' customer of Next over the last year, I just can't get enough of it! From clothing to electricals to furniture...you name it Next seem to sell it!

              Next clothing is fantastic, especially the childrens wear. Everything I have ever brought has washed really well, it is well made and no chance of it falling apart within a few weeks unlike some other high street stores! I find the women wear can be a little pricey at times, but at the end of the day you get what you pay for, so its not always such a bad point. Baby clothes are brilliant, reasonably priced and they wash really well. There are lots of different designs so your little one is 'tip top' and in fashion :)

              Next home ware is my favourite section. The furniture is of very high quality and although may seem a little more expensive than some other furniture shops...you defiantly get what you pay for. E.g. I brought a wardrobe and drawers set from a well known flat packed furniture shop, which wasn't exactly cheap and within a year it had collapsed as it was made from cheap MDF. I then replaced it with a wardrobe and drawers from Next and 'touch wood' it is still sturdy and strong 2 years later!

              I would defiantly recommend online shopping, If I have ever had any problems regarding my purchases, there is always somebody at the end of the telephone that is willing to help, I can honestly say I have not once received bad customer service and they defiantly deserve a 5 star award for it. If you sign up to an online account with next you can receive a credit limit, where you can pay it off as an when you are ready to...Providing you pay the minimum per month. You have the option that can arrange to collect parcels from your closet Next branch which saves on your postage fees.

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              A great store which has great style

              I really love Next and have been a customer for over 10 years now.

              I think Next make really good quality clothing and I cannot fault there children's clothes at all as they wash really well and keep in good condition and shape even after lots of washing. The styles of childrens clothes are really good for both boys and girls and the babywear is very cute and they are a good price.

              I think one of the best things about next is the Next Directory. I really enjoy being able to look through the catalogue for clothes as well as online because the pictures in the catalogue are clearer.

              I think Next have lovely clothing ranges for men, women and children and there home furnishings are also lovely. They also do a really good range of maternity wear and have nice trousers and jeans which look good but are not expensive.

              I do think some things in Next are a little bit too expensive but they do have lots of cheaper options as well so I don't mind that and I don't mind paying a little bit more for stylish good quality clothing.

              I think the shops are always nice to visit and are generally set out very well so there is room to get around even when it is busy and the clothes are always tidy and in order so it is easy to find the size you need.

              One of my favourite things is the end of season sale at Next because they have amazing half price bargains and the sale is also online so even if I can't get to the shop I can still get some bargains.

              I would be lost without Next and would recommend it to everyone.

                Advantages

                Disadvantages

                Great shop but caveat emptor.

                Next is a high street shop, primarily selling clothing for men, women and children. They also have a home section in their larger shops and online.

                Their clothing is a nice mix of fashionable and classic, their workwear in particular is great quality and I have a very unhealthy fetish for their handbags. They have a wide range of leg lengths and tall and petite fit as well as maternity clothing, although these ranges are not available in every shop.

                Where they're really wonderful is children's clothing. The sizes run reasonably true, although legs in their trousers, tights and sleepsuits tend to be a bit shorter than in other brands so long-legged babies grow out of them faster than they need to, while there's still room in the torso. But the clothes themselves are fun and quirkly while being quite good quality.

                I only said "quite" good quality. Next, like many high street retailers, uses sweatshops in manufacturing a lot of their clothing. This means that sometimes corners are cut. I've occasionally had things from Next where the seams had no spare fabric around the edges, which causes a rip the first time you turn around too quickly. Sometimes the sizes are completely bizarre as well. I wear a size 10 in Next jeans. My work trousers are all a size 10, except for one particular suit, where I wear a 14 pair of trousers and an 8 in the jacket. Weird, and demoralising when I have to put the trousers on.

                The cost is a little higher than other high street stores, but their sales are great value and not to be missed. Be careful joining the hordes who turn up at 5am for the after-Christmas sales, things can get really nasty.

                Definitely worth a trip in sale time, but check the individual item you're buying because the quality is sometimes not the best. And don't trust the sizes, always try on.

                  Advantages

                  Disadvantages

                  good quality clothes, would recomend

                  There are 2 next stores around where I live, one in Nuneaton's Rope Walk shopping centre & one on the outskirts of Nuneaton by the Ricoh area.

                  The shops are divided into sections mens, womens, children & home.

                  The stores are always very well organised and clothes are easy to find if there is something in perticular you are looking for.

                  My partner always buys the next jeans for men as they always fit him perfectly, there is a wide selection with different styles and always a varity of leg lengths.

                  Whenever I have bought clothes from next the quality has always been better than any other stores, the prices are always a little more than elsewhere but I can guarentee the item will last a lot longer than from any other stores.

                  The main benefit of next is the boxing day sales! If you have got patients and are prepared to get up early then it is well worth it!

                  We bought clothes for our first baby from the store near the Ricoh arena. It was our first next sale experience and was a bit crazy to begin with! The best tip I can give is take someone with you who can stand in the queue while you shop as the queue for the checkout was 2 hours long!!!
                  The staff are helpful and stand with a banner advising you where the end of the queue is, we were buying items for £1 - £4 is was fantastic we got such good value for money!!!

                  Would definately recommend next and if you can get in the sale it is well worth the hassle!

                    Disadvantages

                    If you havent shopped at next - go there today!

                    For some reason, before I had children I was quite intimidated by NEXT. From the outside, it looks like it could be a little bit stuffy and stuck up inside,so I never went in.

                    All that changed when I had my babies, and I discovered just how good their childrens clothes are!

                    My local store is fairly small, but still has a good range of kids clothes for both boys and girls, and one huge plus point for me is that I can easily get my buggy in and around the shop with no problems; it is only a single pushchair, but you wouldnt believe the amount of trouble I have getting in to some other well-known (clothes) shops!

                    The clothes I have bought have been from newborn up to 3-4 years and have all been excellent quality.

                    They havent faded even with lots of washing, are made with lovely fabrics and the colours are to die for - I am so glad they do girls clothes in teals, and hot pinks, and deep purples...instead of just the sickly powder pink you seem to find in a lot of shops.

                    The girls shoes are amazing too, I really have to contain myself to avoid buying the entire range!

                    And I also recently discovered their underwear- I bought a stunning zebra pink bra with hot pink straps and french briefs set for just £25, and it fits like a dream (unlike some I have bought elsewear)

                    I will NEVER stop shopping at NEXT!

                    Advantages

                    Disadvantages

                    Worth a visit.

                    Next is a store that you can expect to find on all the main high streets in the UK. This is a retailer which sells clothes for women, men and children and also stocks items for the home. I have always found Next to be very good quality and reasonably priced. Their prices have tended to decrease over the past few years, and their items are all whole pound amounts, no pence here!

                    I only use next for clothing for myself, but I do know that their kids clothes fit new born babies to early teens. Their menswear department is also very well stocked with a selection of work clothes, casual clothes an shoes to keep even the fussiest (read: bored) male shoppers entertained for a while.

                    In my experience womenswear departments are always the biggest in the store. Next have a really good range of workwear including suits, individual items, shift dresses, shirts and tops. I generally buy most of my work trousers from next as they have a petite department. At 5ft 4 I tend to find that standard length trousers are too long for me and I don't want to buy a pair of trousers to have to then pay again to have them shortened. Next are really the only store whose petite trousers are the perfect length. I have tried Marks and Spencers, but their short version are far too short!

                    The price on their workwear varies, the trousers I currently have cost £18, which is probably as cheap a pair of work trousers you will find in next. You can pay up to around £40 for a pair that match a suit (jackets come in at around £60 depending on what you are looking for). But no matter which price bracket you fall into the clothes are good quality and most can be machine washed, saving you dry cleaning bills!

                    Next's range of casual/occasion wear is also a winner. Here you can find jeans, leggings/jeggings, dresses, shorts, bikinis, tops, cardigans - anything that you are looking for really you can probably find in next. I have quite a few casual pieces from next and they last me a long time, colour stays in the items well and they retain their shape after numerous washes.

                    The store also has a great selection of shoes, bags and jewellery which are also again very reasonably priced. I am not such a huge fan of their shoes. I bought a pair of boots for the winter and after a few months when it started to snow I realised that they were letting in water. So this has put me off of buying new shoes from them. I also don't like their work shoes as the heels on these are invariably leather, where I work there are cobbled streets so heels get caught in these and rip the leather off, not a good look. I prefer wooden heels which can withstand this!

                    All in all Next is a good shop which sells mostly good quality items at fair prices, can't ask for more than that!

                    Disadvantages

                    a great store, well worth a visit A*******

                    Next

                    I have bought many things from next and in my opinion they are one of the most high quality, high street stores. They have a mens, womens and childrens clothing and accessories range. They also have a home and furniture department and they have a flowers, wine and electricals too.

                    I have only bought from the womens, brands and gift sections of the store. I have many basic tops from next which are of a really high quality and they can also come in value multi packs and they come in a wide range of colours and styles. I also like the bags that next sell, I have a really nice borwn 'worn' leather bag and I just love it, all of their products in my opinion and from my experience are of a really high standard.

                    The factor that I like the most about next is the gift section that they have! Which includes fragrances, gift sets, stationary, jewelry, key rings, bag charms, umbrellas, make up sets and designer fragrances. My favorite next perfume is the daisy one, which is just so nice, summery and light. All of the perfumes and gift sets are all at unbelievable prices. They are perfect for little presents for everyone!

                    They also have a section for branded clothing such as lipsy, adidas, diesel, superdry, dnky jeans, levi's and replay and many more which is great as I don't really like buying designer clothing off the internet as I don't know if it is genuine or not, but with next I know it will be genuine.

                    They have such a wide range of womens clothing and accessories which I love. And you if you don't want to buy the items from their rather nice online store then you can order it from their directory and you can get it delivered to your door or to you nearest store, which is great if you don't really want to put your credit card details online.

                    Conclusions

                    *A really high quality store with really high quality products
                    *Amazingly cute and really cheap gift sets
                    *Good basic tops range
                    *Also has a petite section which is good for me, and it also has a tall section, not so good for me
                    *Really nice and very cheap fragrances, such as daisy which is my absolute favorite
                    *Also has really cute baby clothes
                    *They also have branded shoes and I have bought my converse from next
                    *Nice friendly, not intimidating staff
                    *Nice store layout, easy to find the items you want
                    *Really reasonably priced
                    *New runway and signature collections

                    Thank you for reading my review

                    Advantages

                    Disadvantages

                    great place to shop for clothing for all the family

                    I really like Next, in fact a few years ago I got myself into a lot of debt by my obsession with the store. Now with less credit I do find some of it a little out of my price range, however for the majority the clothing is very reasonably priced and are great quality items.

                    Most of the Next store I have been in are fairly large, they sell a fantastic range of clothing for all the family and also have a good homeware section.

                    Womens Clothing

                    I think the variety of womens clothing is great, they sell so many different styles, your bound to find something you like in there and in your price range too. I like the way they the store tries to cater for everyone, in terms of style, price and size. They do a excellent tall and petite range and its good that this is available for most products. I have a 33inch inside leg and this can make it really hard when buying trousers but I have never had a problem in Next. The sizes are great, rarely will the tag lie and say you are a size bigger and on occasions the tags can be very nice and say you are a size smaller (love it when that happens). Overall the womens section is great no complaints from me.

                    Mens Clothing

                    Again a good variety although not as good as it could be, I find their formal range good but their casual styles can lack imagination, and although some are fashionable others can lack a bit of imagination and look no different to most other labels. I still think it's a good place for men to shop I just feel that the store doesn't give the same variety of style to men as it does to women.

                    Boys Clothing

                    I love buying my sons clothes from next, for some incredibly strange reason my son actually looks cleaner in next clothes lol. I like the way they fit my son and he doesn't seem to wreck them as quickly as other clothes from different stores. I think there is a good choice but again not as good as the girls range. I think the prices are reasonable some products more than others.

                    Girls Clothing

                    I think Next have a lovely range for girls, they do a good variety of styles and all the prices are very reasonable. They sell some beautiful products which any little girl will be proud to wear. I like the fact they don't sell ridiculously provocative clothing for children.

                    Homeware Section

                    I actually think most of their products in this section are over priced but that's probably because they are way out of my price range, however the products do look very nice and sophisticated. I think if you were to purchase one of these items you would definitely be paying for quality.

                    Stores in general

                    All the stores I have been in have been spotless (in terms of cleanliness) and this includes the changing rooms. Theres nothing worse than trying on some clothes only to find dust and dirt all over your clothing from the changing room floor. There always seems to be plenty of mirrors over the store which is a time saver especially when trying on coats and jumpers. The staff always look presentable and are polite and efficient and its nice to have a service with a smile, which I have always had when shopping at this store.

                    Overall

                    Overall I cant really fault Next, although I have stated that the ranges could be better for men and boys its not really a fault and is the only thing I could think of that isn't outstanding. The quality of the clothing is great and you definitely get what you pay for. You can get any item of clothing for any occasion in there and I think that says a lot about the store in terms of the variety they offer their customers. You can also buy things from next simply online at www.next.co.uk.
