A RETAIL giant’s second largest store in the country is to open in Hampshire today.

The Next store in Charles Watts Way will create 150 new jobs in the area when it opens at 10am.

It has numerous departments – womenswear, menswear, kids, home, garden, decorating and DIY along with shoe rooms, a lingerie room and bed shop.

There is also a Costa Coffee shop on site.

Customers can win prizes during the day and there will be a sleep expert on hand with tips and advice for residents.

It was originally set to be a smaller home store on the retail park opposite but Next bosses decided on the 60,000sq ft two-floor store at Wildern Mill instead.
