Fashionistas, make room in your wardrobe because global fashion giant H&M is almost here.
Shoppers have been eagerly awaiting the details surrounding the opening of international fashion retailer H&M’s first South Australian store.
The Swedish fashion company will open its doors in the redeveloped Rundle Mall Plaza on November 2.
The H&M store will span across 3000 sq m over two levels, offering apparel, underwear and accessories for men, women and children.
It will also include an H&M Home concept featuring homewares, curtains, rugs, bed linen, cushions, blankets, storage, serving-ware and decorations.
“We are excited to finally be able to announce the opening date for our Rundle Mall Plaza store on November 2 and to offer our customers an incredible fashion shopping destination within Adelaide,” says Thomas Coellner, Australian Country Manager for H&M.
“We are also looking forward to introducing our H&M Home concept to Adelaide as we feel this really rounds out our wide assortment offering.”
H&M will be the major tenant of Rundle Mall Plaza which has been under redevelopment for most of 2018.
The overall plaza redevelopment, undertaken by owner The Weinert Group, spans over four lower levels of the nine-storey building.
In addition to H&M, a ‘tech hub’ with offices and co-working spaces, a higher-end dining level, and health and well being precinct are also envisaged for the building.
The higher-end dining precinct will offer quality dining experiences that still cater to the lunchtime trade.
Large glass windows in the dining precinct overlooking Rundle Mall will be a feature of the building, as will the relocated Progress status, a welded copper structure created by Lyndon Dadswell in 1959.
H&M entered the Australian market in 2014 and now has 31 stores across the country.
It is understood that about 100 jobs including management positions are being filled within H&M’s Adelaide store.
