But our local M&S food hall is open and you can then wander into the main store to buy clothing and footwear and home items. And Asda and Tesco and Supermarket are also selling clothing etc.

Last time I was in M&S food hall more people were shopping clothes than Food. A few people standing in a queue outside is not "bending the rules"

Don't be daft.

The media have given our opinion of it already.

Channel 4 News told me what I should think of it last night, so I'm squared away.

Whilst I was changing things pre-lockdown, I have decided to go the full way. Apart from food, I shop on-line, don't carry cash anymore and even pay my bus fares by card, eat out less-did not appreciate how much I was spending and hardly watch BBC now when there is so much more on Netflix and Amazon Prime. No longer stuck in traffic congestion in a car or on the bus, looking for a car park space.

Their investment in a committed and effective IT infrastructure a few years back has proved to be a great investment in today's catalysed e-commerce rollout. Easily the best and simplest company to deal with both online and in store - they have married the two functions perfectly. Add value for money and choice and its a no brainer for busy punters.

Haven’t shopped in Next for about 20 years, and that was for socks, apart from socks and underwear their stuff was way too young for me, if older people are shopping there in great numbers for anything but socks and underwear, then there must be a lot of mutton dressed up as lamb walking the streets.

I only shop (on-line) now with Next. I'm older and still want fashion in my size. Other places, even local independents and in particular Oasis & River Island mainly cater for the skinny things. People should be able to wear what ever they want, even me in my rubber dress.

Shame their quality has gone massively downhill. We purchased some bedding and the quality is dreadful. No way will we be going there again.

Clothes are one of the things I don't like shopping for online, I like to see it in person and maybe try it on. Not a fan of the whole order a load of sizes and send back everything that doesn't fit.

Next provides clothes for Petite women and used to sell basic items in petite sizes too. If they strengthen their petite casual range they will increase sales some more
