H&M, a Swedish clothing retailer, will open a new store in NorthTown Mall in fall, officials have announced.
The chain, also known as Hennes and Mauritz Inc., sells women’s, men’s and teen’s clothing. The 23,000-square foot NorthTown store will have an area devoted to accessories and also sell clothing for newborns to 10-year-olds in the H&M kid’s collection.
H&M will hire about 20 people to work at the NorthTown store. The retailer also has a store in the Spokane Valley Mall.
H&M opened its first U.S. store 17 years ago and has 479 stores across the country, with 16,000 U.S. employees.
H&M accepts used clothing for recycling. Last year, the company’s U.S. stores diverted more than two million pounds of unwanted textiles from landfills.
