Get. Your. Life!!! We finally have the date for H&M’s opening at Cape Town’s V&A Waterfront. The Swedish retailer opens its first South African store on October 17th and I can honestly feel my temperature rising, which is great because summer, I’m ready. I really haven’t been hitting that Sea Point Promenade in the mornings for laughs!
Accessories, fashion, homeware… H&M is going deep on this one, Skattie. “Opening in time for the festive season, we couldn’t be more excited to debut the first H&M South African flagship store in the iconic V&A Waterfront. The store is a highlight of global retail and interior standards and customers can look forward to a wide variety of spring and summer collection offerings,” says Pär Darj, Country Manager for H&M South Africa.
According to the retailer, V&A is only the first of many H&M stores to come, with others earmarked for Sandton City in November, the Mall of the South in Autumn 2016, Clearwater Mall at ‘round about the same time , as well as the currently under construction Mall of Africa. Durban, I’m sorry, but maybe they’ve got you in their plans a little while down the line. For the rest of us…. Bitch better get your money right!!!
