Manitobans who have been waiting years for fashion retail giant H&M to arrive in Winnipeg now have a date to circle on their calender.
Sept. 10 — noon to be exact — is when the province’s first Hennes & Mauritz Inc. (H&M) store is slated to open in Winnipeg’s Polo Park Shopping Centre.
The 25,000-square-foot outlet will feature clothing and accessories for men, women, teens and children.
It had been rumoured for more than five years that H&M was coming to Winnipeg, and the Swedish-based firm finally made it official last October when it announced it would be opening a store at Polo Park. But it didn’t give a specific date, saying only that it would be sometime in the fall.
H&M entered the Canadian market in 2004 and now has 67 stores across the country.
