When it comes to shopping, there’s nothing quite like the real thing, is there?
It’s been a year of rescheduled events, growth spurts and getting a little too attached to our PJs... But with a return to civilisation now upon us, we’re ready to break up with our jogging bottoms. Whatever your shopping mission, Clarks Village has got you covered!
The key to any successful mission is being prepared, so if you have any questions about the reopening – including our opening hours, what safety measures we have in place, or what’s new at Clarks Village – please view our FAQs.
We hope you're just as excited to visit Clarks Village as we are to welcome you back! From surprise finds to superb outlet savings, here are some of our top reasons why shopping in real life just can’t be beaten...
A breath of fresh air
The outdoor spaces at Clarks Village are designed to be relaxing – and are just the ticket for safe social distancing. Move freely between the stores, take in the atmosphere, enjoy time outdoors and pause to refuel or take stock of your latest purchases.
Al fresco dining
If the sun is shining, why not treat yourself to a spot of outdoor lunch? Enjoy some European plaza-style dining at Grange Terrace, where you'll find a range of eateries to suit every taste. Tuck into your favourite dish and watch the world go by... Heaven!
On the move? Grab a quick bite or takeaway coffee and soak in the charming oasis of our newly redeveloped Central Square gardens.
Seeing is believing
When you don’t know exactly what you want, or you’re looking for the perfect thing for a summer birthday get-together, browsing the shops really is essential and can’t be replicated online. You never know when ‘the one’ is going to jump out at you – and that’s all part of the fun!
On-hand style advice
Another major benefit of a proper shopping trip that can’t be replaced is on-hand advice from the experts!
Whether you need a complete wardrobe overhaul, the perfect outfit for an upcoming wedding (or five!), or a special gift for a loved one; our brand style experts know current collections inside out and will be delighted to offer tailored advice just for you.
Finding the perfect fit
Take the guesswork out of shopping for growing feet and book a kids shoe fitting appointment at Clarks. Not only can you rest easy knowing the experts have ensured a perfect fit, an in-store measure and fit experience at Clarks is a childhood rite of passage that we all remember fondly!
Appointments are available from the 12th of April. Book online now and beat the queues!
