H&M at Canberra Centre has finally opened its doors, satisfying the retail hunger of the capital’s shopaholics!

More than 1500 people lined up before the doors opened at 10.00am on Thursday 23 November, with the first 250 receiving special gift bags just for the occasion.

H&M public relations manager for Australia and New Zealand, Elizabeth Cave, said the opening day was a hit.

“We were so excited to open our doors to our new H&M store at Canberra Centre yesterday, it was an incredible day,” Ms Cave said.

“We want to thank all our customers for supporting us in creating a successful launch.

“We are looking forward to introducing the H&M brand to even more of the Canberra community in the weeks to come.”
