HARIBO expands retail presence with Clarks Village launch

HARIBO, the UK’s leading sweets manufacturer, is expanding its retail presence with a fourth outlet store opening this summer at Clarks Village in Somerset.

The 1200 square foot unit is part of HARIBO’s ambitious retail strategy, which has seen two further outlet shops open since November 2018.

Rebecca Fox, Retail Manager at HARIBO, comments: “We are really pleased to be announcing our fourth outlet store at Clarks Village. At the start of the year we set some ambitious targets for our retail footprint, which have been spurred on by the success of our most recent launches.

“Our shops really bring out the inner child in our visitors. We are delighted to see the smiles on their faces when they step into the happy world of HARIBO. They just love the choice, the fun and excitement that’s delivered through our stores. Shoppers should look out for family favourites, delicious new treats, must-have merchandise and also a magnificent pick ‘n’ mix wall.

“There’s certainly a lot to get excited about, with plenty of moments of childlike happiness awaiting our shoppers!”

Chris Davis, Centre Manager at Clarks Village, comments, “Whether you are a fan of the iconic Starmix, Tangfastics, Supermix or Giant Strawbs, we are certain that guests at Clarks Village will enjoy visiting the new Haribo store. And in case you were curious, my favourites are the Tangfastics!”

The new store, which will create 7 new jobs, is the latest move in the confectioner’s strategy to roll out its store presence across the UK.

A family-owned business, HARIBO has been making much-loved sweets for almost 100-years. Today these treats are shared and enjoyed around the world. HARIBO operates two manufacturing facilities in West Yorkshire, which are home to more than 700 team members.

While visiting the new store at Clarks Village, shoppers can also discover over 90 high street and designer brands, cafés, ‘grab & go’ kiosks and restaurants that continue to offer great value for money to fashion foragers and style seekers. Clarks Village outlet shopping offers prices that are up to 60% off the RRP, as well as additional seasonal promotions and special offers every day.
