It seems like only yesterday when H&M first set up shop in the Philippines. Now here we are, seven years later, and the Swedish retail brand is opening its—wait for it—40th store in the country in SM Aura. As such a momentous milestone, H&M's new spot comes with a new look and feel that mixes its heritage with modernity.
Aside from the look and feel, H&M's top priorities for the new location are the health and safety of both staff and customers. So, you can rest easy when you come by to shop the retailer's latest collections and drops.
"We are excited to welcome our shoppers to our new store," says Dan Mejia, H&M head of communications and press. "The health and safety of both our colleagues and customers remain to be our priority, we will continue to strictly follow the protocols as well as the guidelines set by our local government unit. Moreover, we are a customer-centric organization, and it involves the full customer journey and that also entails the look and feel of our stores. We want to meet our customers' expectations and create a more inviting, caring, and customer-centric environment."
If the interiors look a bit familiar, that's because H&M started testing the look in its Robinson's Ermita store. You can expect H&M SM Aura to have the full experience though with greenery and warm colors.
