NEXT’S brand new superstore will be opening next week.

Big queues are expected on Thursday, May 22 when the doors of the new homeware store open for the first time at Basildon’s Mayflower Retail Park.

The new 27,000 sq ft store, which has taken months to create, has made 50 jobs for locals.

The new store is just metres away from the existing Next shop, which will close on Saturday**17** at 6pm.
