The major fashion retailer became the latest store to open on the Moor as the ongoing transformation continues.

The High Street chain opened the doors to its new store on Tuesday after workers transformed for the former BHS Unit.

Sheffield shoppers will be celebrating the store’s opening this weekend as they take advantage of Next’s summer sale.

Next will be slashing the prices of everything from clothes to home and furniture items from Saturday, July 6.

The sale is sure to attract huge numbers with hundreds of items on offer for half price or better.

Some products even have price cuts of up to 90 per cent.

The sale will start at The Moor from 6am on Saturday morning and we expect it will be incredibly popular.

Phil Huby, head of retail at Aberdeen Standard Investments, said the arrival of Primark on The Moor acted as a 'catalyst' by increasing footfall and boosting spending.

Visitor numbers have risen by four per cent in the year to date.

Mr Huby said: “Primark opening and delivering them to the heart of the scheme was the real catalyst for The Moor moving forward.

“I think Next really crystalises that work and puts The Moor as the definitive destination for shoppers come into Sheffield city centre.”

Primark moved to The Moor in October 2016 and Mr Huby added that H&M, New Look and Lane7 Bowling Alley will all be open ‘in time for Christmas trading’.

He said: “If you look at Primark and Next, these are the guys that are bucking the trend. Primark are, year after year, recording rising sales growth in fashion and, together with Next, are both at the forefront of strong retail at the minute.

“They are the big units on The Moor and they are the big names that are performing best.”
