LAKELAND, Fla. (WFLA) – Polk County residents will have another option for holiday shopping beginning this Friday when clothing store H & M opens a location at Lakeland Square.

The new H & M store will open at noon on Friday, Dec. 2.

To celebrate the store’s opening day, H & M will offer the first 100 shoppers in line an “H & M Access to fashion Pass” valued from $10 to $300 in addition to other opening offers and giveaways.

The Lakeland store will offer collections for ladies, men, young ladies, and young men to separate “store within a store” sections for accessories.  The store will also carry the H&M Kids collection for newborns to 10 year olds.

H & M has a unique clothing recycling program that offers customers who recycle a discount voucher for their next purchase. H & M is the first fashion company to roll out a global garment recycling program. Customers can help save natural resources and contribute to a reduced environmental impact by donating unwanted pieces of clothing from any brand when they visit the store. Customers will receive a voucher for 15 percent off their next purchase for each bag of donated clothing. Since 2013, 84.8 million lbs. of garments have been collected globally.

H & M was established in Sweden in 1947. Today, there are 451 stores in the U.S. and 3,900 H & M stores around the world.

40 people were hired to work at the new Lakeland store.
