New York City will be the home of the largest H&M in the world as of tomorrow. The massive Herald Square flagship reaches department store status, with its 63,000 square-foot space (that’s a lot of room for $10 blouses), a 35-foot high glass façade and a separate branches for shoes and home goods.
And if an in-store discount for the first 1,000 shoppers won't make you book it to the afternoon opening, maybe a meet-cute with John Legend will. That’s right, the man that croons “All of Me” will be playing the grand opening tomorrow at noon and 20 guests will be selected at random to meet the pop star.
This whirlwind of H&M news (last year's Jeff Koons exhibit at H&M Fifth Avenue, the meet-and-greet with Olivia Wilde during the fast-chain's eco-friendly pop-up) has us seeing stars. Get it? Because they're famous. Crickets.
