Largest Clarks store in the world opens less than an hour away

The largest Clarks outlet store in the world opened its doors today (Wednesday) – less than an hour away from Devon.

Management at the popular footwear store welcomed the first customers to the new shop at Clarks Village in Street, Somerset at 10am this morning, following a ribbon-cutting ceremony.

The massive new store, which spans 1,300 square metres, is the brand’s largest outlet store in the world.

And its 790 square metre sales floor is large enough to hold 10,400 pairs of shoes.
