Clarks celebrates its history by reopening founding store
Footwear brand Clarks has reopened its doors in Somerset, in the building that the brand was first founded in almost 200 years ago.
Located in Street, the store was built with the help of local suppliers. It is the second standalone Clarks Originals store in the UK and celebrates the history and future of the brand's footwear.
Customers can shop new-season Originals styles, as well as order from the entire classic range and collect in-store.
Celebrating the roots of Clarks Originals, the store showcases key moments from the brand’s history, including archival shoe fobs and how signature styles are constructed. Along with the Clarks and Jamaica book, that marks the long-standing connection between Clarks Originals and the island’s culture.
Footwear from the brand’s collaborations are also on display. This includes the recent 80s-inspired Clarks Originals x Levi’s Vintage collection and its partnership with streetwear brand Supreme.
Customers can also experience the brand’s latest launches and campaign films on screens around the store.
The store is open from Monday to Saturday, from 10am to 4pm.
