Today at 10 am, Clas Ohlson opened a new store in Kolbotn just south of Oslo. The opening has been long awaited in the area.
"It feels great to continue to grow in the Oslo region and open more stores. We know that we have been highly anticipated in Kolbotn. There are no similar stores in the area and many people have said that they are happy about the opening,” says Rune Johansen, Country Operations Manager.
The new store has a retail space of 853 square metres and is located in Kolbotn Torg shopping centre, next to Kolbotn Railway Station. The shopping centre has around 50 stores.
“There has been a lot of development in Kolnbotn in recent years. Kolbotn is also an important hub for commuters. The store's location means that residents in the area quickly and easily have access to an affordable and wide range of products for home improvement," says Rune Johansen.
The store opening is Clas Ohlson's fourth opening this year. At present, another nine new store contracts have been signed.
