Bridges Centre director Andy Bradley said: “Next is an extremely popular store and it’s fantastic to see the confidence this major retailer has in Sunderland with its expansion plans.

“It will be an additional incentive for shoppers to come to the centre, particularly as there will now be an even wider range of items for them to choose from.

“At a time when Sunderland is seeing a huge level of investment this is very welcome addition and shows how much the city has to offer.”
