Since Second City Style editors are HUGE proponents of the high-low concept of dressing, we love H&M for their totally on-trend options. Don’t you just love to see MAJOR designer shoes paired with an H&M dress? And how many of us have complimented a friend on something she is wearing only to find out she bought it at H&M? So just imagine how far a $100 or $200 gift card will get you. Read on…
H&M, is thrilled to announce the grand re-opening of its Lexington & 59th Street store on Thursday, August 9th at 10:00am EST. This popular Manhattan location will debut an all new interior that boasts a modern and trendy look.

The truck will run on both Thursday August 9th and Friday August 10thfrom 11am-6pm. Additionally, the first 250 shoppers in line on opening day will receive an Access to Fashion gift pass valued from $10-$300, as well as other fantastic giveaways for the entire family!

  1. The first questions is sort of a trick question because there are 2 possible answers. The first store was called just Hennes and it opened in 1947, however, they changed their name to Hennes & Mauritz in 1968 so that would be the first official Hennes & Mauritz store. The H&M on Lexington and 59th opened in 2004.

  2. The first Hennes store was opened in 1947 in Sweden.
    In 1968, Hennes founder Persson bought Mauritz Widforss and began selling both men’s and women’s clothes, effectively changing its name to Hennes and Mauritz.
    On Oct 22, 2004, H&M opened their 59/Lex store.
