We've given you a heads-up yesterday about the H&M store opening at SM Makati. And, what did we tell you? You need to plan a strategy if you want to get first dibs on the special treats that this Swedish retail giant has to offer! As if the 3,000-square-meter fashion haven isn't enough to make the shoppers go wild, H&M also flew in tennis superstar Tomas Berdych to grace the event.
