NEXT

NEXT Plc traces its history back to 1864 when Joseph Hepworth incorporated J. Hepworth & Son. Joseph Hepworth was a tailor, and described his company as a gentleman’s tailor. The company grew fast, and in the late 1800s, it was operating as a chain store. J. Hepworth & Son transformed into a more robust company in 1981 after acquiring Kendalls, a chain store dealing in rainwear. The company changed its name to NEXT Plc in 1986. After the acquisition of Kendalls, the company began focusing on womenswear.

Presently, NEXT is a clothing retailer. Other products include accessories, footwear, and home products. The company expanded its operations to online platforms. NEXT has interests in the financial industry and property management. The company runs just over 500 stores in the United Kingdom. Internationally, the company mainly operates through online platforms and a website. NEXT trades on the London Stock Exchange as NXT and constitutes the FTSE 100 component. The company headquarters are in Enderby, the United Kingdom.
