Asda is to stock Claire’s products in over 500 supermarkets across the UK as part of an “ongoing successful consumer products partnership.”
The announcement comes after a successful “test-and-learn” trial that began in October 2020 and saw the high street accessories retailer’s products stocked in ten Asda stores across the UK.
Claire’s products will be available at the supermarket, including hair, cosmetics, and fashion accessories, as well as seasonal items for back-to-school and Christmas.

Chief executive Ryan Vero said the partnership brings the business “within reach of even more customers in even more locations where they live and shop”.
