A Store Selling Exclusively Haribo Sweets Is Opening Next Week

A shop is opening at Cheshire Oaks Designer Outlet in the north west that sells exclusively - wait for it - Haribo sweets!

Opening next week, the shop trades exclusively in everyone's favourite sweeties, as well as Haribo merchandise.

Before you ask, of course there is going to be a huge pick 'n' mix area so that you can choose only your favourites and not be landed with the congealing group at the bottom that no-one wants.

According to a report in Cheshire Live, it's going to be the third shop like this, and it will be throwing wide its doors on Tuesday 16th April.

Haribo's retail manager, Rebecca Fox, said: "After much planning, we're thrilled to be bringing Haribo's fun and unique personality to life once more - this time for shoppers at McArthurGlen Designer Outlet Cheshire Oaks.

"We opened our first outlet store in December 2017 and in November last year our York store opened its doors too - both are experiencing a great deal of success which we are hoping to replicate and build on.

"Once again we're excited to showcase our much-loved range and to provide the perfect place for visitors to immerse themselves in the happy world of Haribo whilst enjoying everything that is on offer at the extensive outlet."

Obviously, the good folks at Cheshire Oaks are pretty happy to have Haribo moving in, as well. Kenny Murray, the Centre Manager of the Designer Outlet complex said: "We are thrilled to welcome Haribo to Cheshire Oaks, they are a fantastic addition and elevate our family friendly offering.

"We look forward to seeing the smiles on our guest's faces as they experience the new store."

There you have it. However, if you simply can't wait a whole week to visit one of these stores, the other two are situated in London and York. If you live close by to one of those places, you're in luck.

Haribo started out in Germany back in Johannes 'Hans' Reigel Snr. It was back in 1922 when he invented the gummy bear - what a day in the history of sweets - and they've never looked back since then.

These days they're pretty much the most recognisable confectionery company in the whole world. They are famous for their Tangfastics, Supermix, Starmix, and - it may come as news to you - Maoam sweets.

Obviously all of those are going to be available at the new Cheshire Oaks store. Enjoy responsibly - or don't.
