Swedish fashion giant H&M has finally confirmed one of the city's more poorly kept secrets - that it will be opening a store at Uptown shopping centre in the spring.
In a brief release Monday, H&M noted it will be opening its 62nd Canadian outlet early in the new year after completing tenant improvements on its space at the $300 million mixed-use development.
H&M, or Hennes & Mauritz, is a budget fashion chain based in Sweden and employs about 100,000 people worldwide. The company claims it offers high fashion and quality basics at affordable prices.
It's the most recent in a series of new tenant announcements at Uptown. This fall, Toronto-based Kids & Company announced it will open a 10,000-square-foot corporate daycare. Canadian apparel company Joe Fresh also had its tenant improvement building permit processed at Saanich municipal hall.
California-based Forever 21 also announced it would open next year.
