Fashion and lifestyle retail conglomerate Apparel Group has reached a strategic collaboration to expand the retail footprint of global footwear brand Clarks in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA).
The companies plan to open more than 20 Clarks stores in the country over the next five years.

In addition, the expansion aligns with Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030, a strategic framework designed to boost the country’s economy and reduce its reliance on oil.
