The company was founded by Joseph Hepworth in Leeds in 1864 as a tailor under the name of Joseph Hepworth & Son. Hepworth expanded the company rapidly, becoming a pioneer for the development of chain stores in Brittan, establishing over 100 outlets by 1884. In 1981 the company bought womenswear retailer Kendall’s and redeveloped the business into a chain of shops to compliment its Hempworth’s menswear offering. Designer Terrance Conran recruited George Davis to work at Kendall’s, who went on to rebrand the company and launch Next in 1982. The company bought youth brand Lipsy in 2008. In 2009, Next launched an online catalogue for the United States offering clothing, shoes and accessories for men, women & children.Read More
