NEW YORK — H&M will cement its place in New York City with the opening of its 13th store in Times Square.
The retailer has announced the lease signing for a 42,500 sq. ft. space that will become part of the NYC skyline, complete with 70 ft. by 70 ft. signage at the top of the store.
The store will feature three floors housing collections for ladies, men and children.
"H&M believes strongly in the New York City market. Since opening our first US store in Manhattan in 2000, we will now have 13 stores in Manhattan alone in 2013 and over 250 across the country", says Daniel Kulle, U.S. President for H&M. "Opening this new concept store in Times Square, the crossroads of the world, shows our commitment to opening in the best locations as well as our continued potential to open stores in Manhattan and the greater New York City area. This new H&M location will join our new flagship store on Fifth Avenue as world-wide shopping destinations."
H&M recently announced that it will open a store in The Shops at Columbus Circle located at the prestigious Time Warner Center, at the end of this year, as well as its new flagship store at 589 Fifth Avenue, which will be the largest H&M store in the world measuring 57,000 sq. ft.
