H&M Vancouver Opens

Posted in Around Vancouver, Shopping

The new H&M store in Vancouver at Pacific Centre opened today. This is the second H&M to open in BC, the first of which opened at Coquitlam Centre. The Coquitlam store opened last summer to more than 800 shoppers in the first hour, and the opening party last night made that opening look tame by comparison.

The new H&M holds two floors at Pacific Centre in the old Holt Renfrew space. The Vancouver store is the largest H&M in Canada. At 28,000 square feet, the mini department store is sure to be come a centre of activity in the downtown core. The downtown store will cater more towards the high fashion for adults, as opposed to simply clothes aimed at teens. The first floor is devoted to women’s clothing, while the second floor caters to men, children and babies.

Ianiv went down to H&M a half-hour before the store was set to open today at noon. He took some photos of the enormous line gathered around the block. They allowed him inside to grab some shots of the store prior to the madness that would soon envelop it.
