H&M to Open New Location at premier shopping destination, Sundance Square

 

H & M, Hennes & Mauritz AB (H&M), one of the world’s largest fashion retailers famous for offering fashion-forward apparel at affordable prices, is thrilled to announce a new location in Fort Worth, Texas. Measuring approximately 31,000 square feet, the new location at Sundance Square, a premier shopping destination, will join the six other popular destinations in the greater Dallas metro area. Sundance Square is a successful 35-block mixed-use development featuring restored turn-of-the-century buildings and urban skyscrapers with brick-lined streets filled with retail, restaurants, entertainment, office, and residential elements. H&M is especially excited to expand its reach in Fort Worth, a fast growing market for the retailer.

The new H&M location will offer Fort Worth residents a one stop shopping destination for quality clothing for the whole family, with collections ranging from ladies and men to separate “store within a store” sections for accessories, maternity, sports apparel, and its plus-size line, H&M+. The Sundance Square location will also carry H&M’s children’s collection, from newborn to eight years. The breadth and variety of H&M collections make it easier for any consumer to find suitable products, no matter his or her style or wardrobe needs. With an emphasis on design, quality, and sustainability, H&M offers inspiring, high fashion at an unbeatable value.

H&M prides itself on its support of local economies by adding jobs with each new location. As a continuously expanding brand, H&M constantly searches for new talent to grow with the company. With the opening of the Sundance Square store, H&M is proud to add to the current, ever-expanding total of approximately 15,000 US employees. The brand continues to grow in both new and existing markets while remaining focused on quality, high profitability, and sustainability. For available job opportunities, please visit careers.hm.com.

Sustainability is an integral part of H&M; the brand is actively working to ensure that both new and existing stores are sustainable in the long term. Initiatives include recycling waste, utilizing water and energy efficient systems, and selecting environmentally responsible materials such as certified wood and fabrics.

Since H&M opened the doors to its first US store on New York’s Fifth Avenue 15 years ago, the US has been one of the retailer’s most successful markets. H&M is proud to offer US consumers quality fashion at competitive prices at its 363 locations across the country, and looks forward to continued expansion at the best properties worldwide.
