Westfield Chatswood is the site of H&M’s third store in Sydney following the opening of H&M Macquarie Centre, North Ryde in 2014 and H&M Pitt Street Mall last October.
The store will span approximately 2,700 square metres and be set over 2 levels featuring apparel, underwear and accessories for men, women and children. The store will open at 11am with live entertainment and giveaways from 9am. The first 500 customers in line will receive a H&M giveaway bag.
H&M entered the Australian market in 2014 and currently has 8 stores nationwide; Melbourne’s GPO and Eastland Shopping Centre in VIC, Macquarie Centre, North Ryde and Pitt Street Mall in NSW, Indooroopilly Shopping Centre, Westfield Garden City and Queen Street, Brisbane in QLD and Joondalup Shopping Centre in WA.
Internationally, the company is set to enter the New Zealand market, opening its first H&M store at Auckland’s Sylvia Park in late 2016. It is also planning a major push across the Asian market, with steady expansion of its store network. H&M says it will open 70 stores in China in the year to November 30, taking its network up to just over 300.
