HENNES & Mauritz Inc. (H&M) continues its expansion in the southern part of the Philippines, as it opened its 18th store in the country this month.
Open to an exciting set of new shoppers in the fast-developing city of Cagayan de Oro, the over 1,800-square-meter store opened its doors in Centrio Mall last October 27.
"The response from our Mindanao customers, after we opened our first store in Davao just last month, has been incredible! We look forward to catering to even more of the same vibrant shoppers here in Cagayan de Oro, as we open in Centrio Mall. We hope to be the city's destination for fashion and quality at the best price, in a sustainable way," said Fredrik Famm, country manager for South East Asia.
"We have also selected a great group of H&M team members to give you the best shopping experience in this store, and we hope you will welcome and embrace them as your own!" he added.
Cagayan de Oro's first H&M store carries the full assortment of H&M, including ladies, men's, kids, shoes, accessories and lingerie. It also features a full sports, denim and underwear department for both men and ladies.
Within all of these, the mindful shopper will find an array of conscious and sustainably-produced products, and offer the option to donate used clothes and get a discount voucher to use for their next purchase under H&M's Garment Collecting program.
The hundreds who shopped and lined up on opening day received great offers. Gift cards of varying amounts from P300 to P2,000 were handed out to the first 300 people in line, with a special prize of P5,000 for the first who lined up at 5 p.m. the day before the opening.
The next 300 walked away with special H&M umbrellas and tote bags. A special treat also awaited stylish shoppers -- five of the most fashionable people spotted in the queue before opening were chosen by social media influencers Vern and Verniece Enciso and given P2,000 Gift Cards each. Great fashion finds for as low as P300 also awaited everyone else who shopped until the weekend.
H&M's regular operating hours are from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. (PR)
