Clas Ohlson’s new store in Finnsnes has opened

The interest was high when Clas Ohlson opened its brand new 850 square metres large store in Finnsnes in Norway yesterday.

– We have opened a fantastic store in Finnsnes. The commercial area in Finnsnes has over time become northern Norway’s third largest. It is the perfect place for us to be. I am looking forward to following the success of this store, says Geir Hoff, Country Manager Norway at Clas Ohlson.

The store is approximately 850 square metres with a catchment area of approximately 35.000, where 11.000 live in the city itself.
