Prior to 2007, Next only advertised immediately before a sale, usually through short television commercials and newspaper advertisements. In 2007, following a “disappointing” 7.2% decline in like-for-like sales, the company announced that it would “invest £17 million over the next three years to relaunch its existing business and product offering” + an additional £10 million for marketing.  Yasmin Le Bon, who modeled in the first Next Directory in the spring of 1988, appeared in an online fashion show.  Staff in the next store typically earn between £2 and £6 less per hour than staff in the distribution centre. Nearly nine out of ten store employees at Next are women and most of the 400+ Next workers supporting the legal claim are women.
If Next loses the dispute, it could lead to an increase in labour costs of around £100 million, retail sources said. Until about 1991, Next used a tiny black Courier font on a white background for its logo. It was replaced by the NEXT logo in capital letters in a Roman serif style font. There were a few variations of this, such as the logo with each letter of NEXT in a single square and in some stores in 2005/2006 had the Next logo printed in a variable blue and black background with “Xs”, as opposed to the black background. In addition, some font variations occurred when using the logo – including similar fonts where serifs were positioned above the “T” crossbar, similar to Garamond and others that had more in common with Times New Roman. In 2007, a new logo was introduced, although the previous logo continued to be used while supplies lasted. In September 2007, to celebrate its 25th anniversary, Next launched its first television campaign in twelve years entitled “Ali`s Party” with the song “Suddenly I See” and with Brazilian model Alessandra Ambrosio.  All additional performers were employees of Next, otherwise known as “nextras”. A second commercial featuring Ambrosio aired in November 2007 and the songs were played regularly in the store during the campaign.
 Next PLC (LSE:NXT) acknowledged that the store and warehouse roles in the early stages of litigation are comparable to those of its store employees. Next`s prices in Ireland came under fire in 2009 when the company was one of four retailers accused of failing to pass on foreign exchange savings to buyers in the Republic.

Hepworth was originally in partnership with James Rhodes, but the partnership was dissolved in 1872.  In September 2018, the company`s Irish operating profits were separated from Next plc.
