Fact: H&M [H & M Hennes & Mauritz AB] is a Swedish retail clothing company with more than 2,300 chains worldwide [41 countries and counting].
With over 2,300 stores scattered all over the planet, our town, Söderhamn, doesn’t have one. Isn’t it ironic? I am living in Sweden but whenever I want to do some H&M shopping, I have to do it online or well, travel for hours just to find a store! Finally, the people behind H&M have decided to open a boutique downtown in autumn 2012. Yes. You’ve read that right! H&M is coming to Söderhamn! Lovely!
The 1,150-square-meter H&M Söderhamn building is going to be constructed at Köpmangatan 4 --- a five-minute walk from our apartment! Oh yeah!
According to sources [helahalsingland.se], H&M will also open its doors to Bulgaria, Indonesia and Thailand next year.
