The Detroit H&M location at Bedrock’s 1505 Woodward Ave. will open at noon on Thursday, Nov. 21. The approximately 25,000-square-foot location at the northwest corner of Woodward Avenue and Clifford Street will be the 19th in the state.
The retailer will offer men’s, women’s, and children’s clothing and accessories and employ about 20 people. Applications are available here. Store hours will be 10 a.m.-9 p.m. Monday-Saturday and 11 a.m.-7 p.m. Sunday.
“As Bedrock’s largest retail tenant, H&M signals a tipping point for the historic Woodward Shopping District,” says Matt Cullen, CEO of Bedrock. “For the first time in decades, shopping for the whole family is available on our main thoroughfare, and there is much more to come.
“This global brand will fit perfectly with the local businesses, tech companies, startups, and fellow fashion industry leaders that already call Woodward home. This is an important next step in Detroit’s evolution as a destination for shopping, entertainment, dining, and doing business. We look forward to continuing the momentum a retailer like H&M represents.”
To celebrate, the location will offer the first 500 shoppers in line an H&M Access to Fashion Pass valued between $10 and $500. Customers who bring in old garments to recycle on the opening day can also enter to win a gift card from $50-$500.
In 2013, H&M was the first global fashion company to launch in-store garment recycling. In 2018, it diverted more than 3.4 million pounds of unwanted textiles from landfills. All of its stores in the U.S. are powered by renewable energy.
H&M Hennes & Mauritz AB was founded in Sweden in 1947. It has 50 online markets and more than 4,900 stores in 73 markets including franchise markets.
