Haribo store to open at Ashford Designer Outlet

Kent's first Haribo store is coming to Ashford Designer Outlet.

Customers will be able to sample sweet treats produced in the UK and exclusive products imported from Haribo factories across the world at the new store - which will be the first to open in the county and the south east of England.

The global confectionery giant has strengthened its retail presence over the last two years and currently has five sweet shops scattered across the country, including stores in Yorkshire, Cheshire, London and Somerset.

The company is currently advertising for sales assistants, a keyholder and store managers to fill positions at its new sweet store in Kimberley Way.

It has not yet been confirmed when it will open, but it is thought that it will fill a unit in the multimillion pound shopping centre extension.

Set to open this October, the expansion will see a further 50 brands added to the site.
