One of the most awaited store openings in Cebu is finally happening. Hennes & Mauritz or popularly known as H&M is finally opening their first store in Cebu on November 27 at the Ayala Center Cebu.
H&M is a Swedish global brand that was founded in 1947. The store back then was only selling women’s clothing and it’s called Hennes. In 1968, H&M founder Erling Persson bought Mauritz Widforss, a hunting and fishing equipment store. At the same year, the name was changed to Hennes & Maurtiz and they started selling men’s and children’s clothing. H&M currently has stores in 55 countries, USA, UK, China, Japan, Thailand and the Philippines just to name a few.
In the Philippines, H&M opened their first store last October 2014 at the Mega Fashion Hall of SM Megamall. After the success of the brand in the Philippines, H&M continued their expansion by opening more stores in the country. H&M now has a total of 8 stores, 3 more stores will be opening this month and that includes their biggest store in the Philippines at Ayala Center Cebu.
