Next UK fans will be happy to know that Sears.com has just become the exclusive US retailer for Next UK's popular line of clothing. By partnering with Sears, Next aims to avoid the pitfalls that have plagued many UK retailers that have tried to crack the US market. Marks & Spencer, Tesco, J Sainsbury and Dixons have all had ill-fated forays here. Topshop and Burberry, however, are
two UK fashion retailers that have caused a positive stir by opening their own stores in the US.
