H&M, one of the world’s largest fashion retailers, known for offering high fashion and quality basics at affordable prices, is proud to announce the opening of its 11th store in Manhattan at the iconic Time Warner Center. H&M’s first store on the Upper West Side is set to open in Fall 2012. The fashion retailer is thrilled to be welcomed to one of New York’s most prestigious places to dine, shop, live and work.
The 21,000 square foot, two floor H&M store will be located at the Shops at Columbus Circle, which is commonly known as the gateway to the Upper West Side, is at the forefront of international culture, fashion, music and arts. This will be the first store in Manhattan to feature an exclusive men’s shop with its own separate entrance. “This H&M location will be a great addition to our already impressive roster of stores, as well to the phenomenal retail mix at this location,” says Daniel Kulle, U.S. President for H&M. “H&M believes strongly in the New York City market, and with our first store on the Upper West Side, we are excited to offer local Manhattan shoppers even more access to the brand’s fashion-forward, quality collections.” H&M at the Shops at Columbus Circle will feature collections for ladies and men including lingerie, underwear and accessories. This location will also carry H&M’s fantastic children’s collection, featuring quality clothing for new-born up to kids age 8.
The U.S. has been one of H&M’s most important markets since opening its first store on New York’s Fifth Avenue twelve years ago. Now offering U.S. consumers access to quality fashions at the best prices through 238 locations across the country, H&M is delighted to continue its expansion in its first U.S. city. Globally, H&M has more than 2,500 stores in 44 markets around the world.
Time Warner Center, a 2.8 million square-foot complex, is uniquely comprised of two towers, which have become part of the legendary New York City skyline since opening in 2003. The Center’s towers are the home of New York institutions such as Mandarin Oriental Hotel, Per Se, the world-renowned Jazz at Lincoln Center, and Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week.
