Next will be taking over the former Sainsbury's unit at the centre, investing in a multi-million pound state-of-the-art store.
The new store, which will be one of Next’s biggest in the UK will incorporate a Lipsy, full homeware offer and coffee shop when it opens in spring 2018.
The 75,680 sq ft store is one of a number of new brands that have invested in new space at intu Merry Hill since intu took full ownership of the centre last year including JD Sports, Topshop and River Island.
TAG Heuer, Five Guys and Virgin Holidays are among brands to have also opened stores in recent months.
intu Merry Hill is set to welcome a range of new dining and leisure outlets and will also be fully refurbished under intu’s plans to spend £100 million to further enhance its retail and leisure mix.
