Sweet expansion for Haribo

HARIBO has announced plans to extend its Pontefract footprint with a £150,000 investment, which will see the popular brand extend its retail outlet on Front Street.

Tripling the size of its existing shop, which will stand at 95 sq m, the new unit will be bigger and better than ever before.

It will house an extensive range of treats including those made within the UK and a selection of exclusive products imported from HARIBO factories across the world.

Adding extra excitement to the new look store, there will also be limited edition merchandise available to purchase.

Gavin Jones, store manager, said: “The HARIBO shop is a very popular destination for local people and is often a stop off for visitors to the region.

“Through our investment we will be improving the look and feel of the site, both internally and externally, whilst also extending the space so that we can increase the range of products on offer.

"Excitingly, we will also be extending our hours of opening to include Saturday trading.”

The new store is scheduled to open on Saturday 19 August. Allowing the renovation to take place, the current store is currently closed.
