High street retailer Next has relaunched into kitchen sales, having formed a supply partnership with Betta Living which will also supply an installation service.
Next first introduced kitchens in 2008, along with bedrooms and bathrooms, but stopped selling kitchens in December 2012 when its relationship with its previous supplier ended.
It will offer 50 kitchen designs, across contemporary and classical styles, which will be displayed in 13 Next Retail Home and Garden stores around the UK. The roll-out of the kitchen programme has already begun, with four of the stores – Shoreham, Gateshead, Aintree and Leeds – already fitted out.
The kitchens will be showcased on a website www.nextkitchens.co.uk and will feature in its Autumn/Winter catalogue.
A spokesperson for Next commented: “Betta Living has a strong reputation as the market leader when it comes to customer service, coupled with a fabulous choice of kitchens. We can be safe in the knowledge that our customers will receive the high levels of service that Next prides itself on and we’re delighted to be able to complement our homewares offer with a fitted kitchen offer.”
