H&M opening new stores in NYC, including mammoth flagship

H&M, known for its fast fashion, is strengthening its presence in New York City with stores in Times Square and at Columbus Circle, as well as a monster-sized new flagship store.

The Times Square store will be a full-concept store with three floors of fashion for women, men and children. It will be the 13th store in Manhattan.

H&M is sold on the Big Apple. A store in The Shops at Columbus Circle located in the Time Warner Center will open by year-end, and a new flagship store at 589 Fifth Ave.  is the talk of fashion lovers. And I’m not just talking about New Yorkers.

The new flagship store, opening in 2013, will be the largest H&M in the world with more than 57,000 square feet. It will be six stores and house everything the brand offers –  clothing for women, men, children; lingerie, maternity, special sizes, home goods and cosmetics.

I’m thinking it would be worth the price of an airplane ticket to go check out this shopping monster. Who’s with me?
