H&M, the international retailer known for fashion and quality at the best price in a sustainable way, is all set to open its first store in Kolkata at Woodburn Central Mall. H&M currently operates 17 stores across India. The store at Woodburn Central Mall will mark the brand's entry in East India and will be one of the 9 new stores planned for autumn 2017.

The store will be inaugurated on September 23, 2017. Presenting a wide selection of latest trends and timeless classics, H&M will offer women’s, men’s, teenagers and children’s apparels & accessories, footwear and lingerie.

"We are delighted to open our first store in Kolkata just in time for the festivities. We look forward to exceed customer expectations with our varied range of inspiring fashion that lets them explore their personal style," said Janne Einola, country manager, H&M India.

The H&M Group has more than 4,400 stores in 66 markets including franchise markets. India will be the new H&M online market in 2018. The other new H&M store markets in 2018 are Uruguay and Ukraine.

Six new H&M online markets were opened in spring 2017 at Turkey, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Macau, Singapore and Malaysia, all of which have had a good start. The H&M online store is now available in 41 markets, and with the addition of Cyprus and the Philippines, the H&M online store will soon be available in 43 markets.

In parallel with the expansion, the store portfolio is being optimised as regards the number of stores, store space, rebuilds and relocations, to continually ensure that the store portfolio is right for each market. (RR)
