First three H&M store locations to open in Seattle

H&M, Hennes & Mauritz, the design-driven clothing retailer known for quality high fashion style at affordable prices, announces its expansion into the Pacific Northwest region with three store locations opening in Seattle during fall, 2008.

H&M believes strongly in the Seattle market and is proud to be a part of this growing epicenter of trendsetting consumers. The new stores will be located in very distinct, popular shopping destinations within the Emerald City including University Village, Westfield Southcenter, and a downtown location on Pike Street, giving H&M the ability to serve a variety of customers in this diverse market.

The new two-level store location in the University Village lifestyle center, near the University of Washington, will measure approximately 19,000 square-feet giving students, and everyone who is interested in fashion, access to affordable and stylish trends.

H&M Westfield Southcenter will complement the revitalization of this super-regional mall with approximately 25,000 square-feet and two floors of shopping for the entire family.

A third store, located on tourist-favored Pike Street, will offer 16,000 square-feet of great fashion finds for the urban shopper.

The U.S. has been one of H&M’s most important expansion markets since the company’s New York debut seven years ago. There are currently 146 H&M stores in the U.S. and a total of around 1,500 stores in 28 countries around the world.
