Anyone live near Edmonton, London (and know the area near Ikea)?

Found 6th May 2009
Do you know if the new NEXT Home store is open yet?

It is next to Argos (is THAT open yet LOL?) near where Ikea and Tesco is

Thanks

Edmonton, OMG:w00t:



Yeah - what's it to you

I asked my hubby... he drives past there every day on the way to work... he said...

"Ikea by Tesco's? There's a Next there? .."

Can I hit him now please?

Asked a friend who was at Edmonton Tescos today. He said "What, an Argos? Next? I didnt see them"

To be fair Next isn't right next to Ikea or Tesco.

It has been opened where the old Wickes used to be ( I think it was Wickes or homebase) On the site opposite Mothercare.

Because of the minor service road running along side the A406 you might not notice the store that much.

Quite true - they probably are not as observant about high street shops - but you can guarantee a Man would have known EXACTLY which DIY store was located there!

My male friend did not know where the Wickes was either.
No hope really :whistling:

Same side of the road as the Tescos and Ikea? Or opposite side? I remember a Wickes on the same side, but possibly a Homebase on opposite side of carriageway

we kinda take a short cut to come from Ikea back onto the a406 on the opp side to mothercare. There's so many big stores on that approach it's hard to remember each one.

Same side of the road.

Wickes closed down though - and that site is being redeveloped into different stores - one of which being the new Next store.

If you come off the Mollison Ave (North/South route) to cut through Tesco or Ikea, on Exiting, come up to the roundabout and turn right towards Mothercare - then turn right again and bear left.

You'd be out side Next

OMG I am so confuse now, so is it open? :giggle:

Opposite the big Mothercare there is now a Maplins, Argos and Next Home store (and maybe one other - I know Maplin is open now

Wickes is open too, though - but it is facing the A406, didn't know it to be any other way :w00t:

Have not been that way for a while. There is a Next at Gallions Reach. Just down from where A13 crosses
A406. It has homeware as well

No its not open yet.
Neither is Argos.

I have got this huge wall art thing to return to NEXT, it would save me having to wait for a courier if the Edmonton store was open :thumbsup:

Do you mean their is a Homebase in Edmonton? Because there isn't one anywhere in Beckton, the nearest is Dagenham :thinking:

Couriers don't take long to turn up though do they? And it's free



I know, but the Next at Edmonton is only a 5-10 minutes away so would be more convenient, I just don't go that way regularly so didn't know if it had opened yet

No meant that there is a Next that does home furnishings at Gallions Reach. Also an argos and and big B&Q. No homebase

Wow didn't know so many people lived near there! Drove past there a few days ago and they're still not open!

K, cool :thumbsup: I do usually go to the Gallions store as my Mum lives in Beckton, but Edmonton will be more convenient WHEN it's open

Sure I saw a sign before that said opening in May :thinking: so should be soon then

Went by yesterday, everything is open apart from argos which has a notice saying opening early june!

Yup, can confirm, the sign outside the Next store says "Opening Early June 2009"

Another Edmontonion!

So that's next week probably, it's had that sign for ages so surely they should have a date by now!
