Shop that only sells Haribo sweets to open next week – and it sounds amazing

If you love Haribo sweets then you’re going to want to pay a visit to this very special new store opening soon

Haribo fans rejoice! Something very special is coming your way.

A shop entirely devoted to your favourite sweet treat is set to open its doors to the public next week.


The new store will be located at Chesire Oaks and it’s going to offer a range of chewy sweets and merchandise – and there will even be a pick ‘n’ mix zone.

According to Cheshire Live, it will be the third outlet of its kind to exist in the country when it opens on Tuesday, April 16.

Rebecca Fox, Haribo’s retail manager, 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.”

And Kenny Murray, Cheshire Oaks’ Centre Manager added: “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.”

The two other Haribo stores are located in London and York.

The German confectionary company has been going since 1920, when it was founded by Johannes ‘Hans’ Reigel, Sr.

Haribo began selling their first gummy sweets in 1922, when Hans invented the first Gummibärchen – gummy bears.

Today in the UK, the company’s main products are Starmix, Supermix, Tangfastics and Moam sweets.
