Cheap-chic fashion powerhouse Hennes & Mauritz, a.k.a. H&M, will be making its Hollywood debut late next year. Europe’s largest fashion retailer has agreed to lease with CIM Group a 10,000-square-foot store on Hollywood Boulevard, CIM principal Shaul Kuba said Wednesday. The store will be across the street from CIM’s Hollywood & Highland Center.
“Hollywood has the demographics and the appeal as a hip location, which is attractive to the H&M customer who wants what’s current, trendy and creating a buzz,” Kuba said. CIM previously announced a lease with H&M for a 12,000-square-foot store in Pasadena. The moves are part of an expansion by the Swedish retailer, which sells fashionable clothes at low prices.
– FINALLY!!! LA is so much more trendy then San Fran IMO, but whatever. I’ve been shopping in NYC for my good friend that lives in LA for a hot min now…soon she’ll be able to cop her own things at H&M…anyone that knows me knows I LUV H&M…it’s the bombs!!! There’s like a million of them here in NYC…but somehow sometimes I still can’t manage to get everything I want in that store, either there’s no small sizes or it’s sold out! SUCKS!!!
