At 10 am today, Clas Ohlson’s 88th Swedish store was opened in Varberg, Sweden, as the first customers entered the new store. This means that Clas Ohlson now has a total of 220 stores in six markets.

Trade in the town of Varberg is on the increase and we have great potential to solve our customers’ everyday practical problems here. We have a strong team in place who, after intense preparations, is really looking forward to welcoming customers to the store," says Fredrik Uhrbom, Country Manager Sweden at Clas Ohlson.
