H&M in Singapore?!
Could this be true?
According to the H&M website it is! Check out the official press release:
H & M Hennes & Mauritz AB takes the first step into South East Asia by opening a store at the best business location on Orchard Road in Singapore’s most central shopping area.
The store will be located in Orchard Building, Singapore, and will have a sales area of approximately 3,000 square metres. The store is planned to open during the autumn of 2011.
We look forward to opening our first store in South East Asia. There is great potential for expansion in this highly populated and fashion conscious region, and Orchard Road in Singapore is the perfect first step for this, says Karl-Johan Persson, CEO at H&M.
Interesting that they would say that Singapore is the first store in Southeast Asia given that H&M has been in HK for ages now (but on hindsight, HK has gone back to China so technically it’s no longer counted as part of SEA? Hmm…. geopolitics complicates things…)
In any case, I am stoked! FINALLY! Took them awhile but at least we won! Next up, lobbying for Krispy Kremes!
Are you excited about H&M coming to Singapore? Or are you having mixed feelings because prices will be extravagant and the pieces will no longer be exclusive? Share your views with us!
