Haglöfs opens its first Norwegian Brand Store
Haglöfs' first Norwegian Brand Store opened its doors in March at Grensen 8, one of Oslo's most attractive locations. The store, with its 300m2 split over two levels, is decorated in minimalist Scandinavian design yet offers a warm and inviting environment where everyone will feel welcome.
“After Stockholm, Seoul and Tokyo, it is finally time for us Norwegians to have our very own Haglöfs Brand Store. It is an important milestone for Haglöfs, and something we are extremely proud of,” says Bjarne Budal, country manager for Haglöfs AS in Norway.
Haglöfs Brand Store Oslo will display the full range of Haglöfs' outdoor clothing, backpacks, sleeping bags and shoes. But it also has several other objectives. For example, the store offers a service corner with a complete stock of accessories, where the customer can be helped with both maintenance and minor repairs to their products. A specific part of the store is dedicated to the history of the company, and here it is possible to have a cup of coffee and read about Haglöfs' hundred year history as an outdoor company. A small library with inspiring outdoor literature also makes up an important element.
“We want the store to inspire people to head out into nature, not only by being able to physically touch and feel the entire Haglöfs' range but also by offering advice and ideas about new outdoor adventures,” concludes Budal.
