VIENNA — Following the opening of its first franchise store in Berlin, Clonezone is due to open a second in Vienna this December.
The opening comes less than six months after the first franchise store opened with another two stores due to open in Barcelona and Madrid early next year, the company said.
“The Clonezone franchise concept is extremely appealing so we are not surprised things have moved so quickly, “says Nigel Glenn, franchise and operations manager. “We are extremely happy with the locations so far and are looking forward to opening in Vienna and bringing the gift of Clonezone to the community in time for Christmas.”
Clonezone is regarded as the U.K. and Europe’s first gay superstore with the first store opening in 1984. Over the course of the next two decades Clonezone continued to grow with stores opening in a variety of locations. According to the company, the recession in 2008 hit the high street the hardest, and led to Clonezone consolidating its stores down to Soho, Earls Court, Birmingham and Manchester.
The company’s resurgence as the U.K.’s leading gay retailer is boosted by the 2,500 product lines it carries; with products sourced from all over the world and exclusive agreements. Clonezone has also developed its own product ranges.
Clonezone Berlin is situated in Schonenberg in the heart of East Berlin on Kalckreuthstrasse, a go-to destination for gay retail. According to the company, the store has already exceeded expectations, with the Folsom Fair being a particular highlight.
Those interested in the Clonezone Franchise opportunity will need at least $70K investment and share the Clonezone vision, the company. To find out more visit Clonezone.co.uk and click the franchise tab or contact Nigel Glenn via email at email@example.com.
