The store will also fea­ture fash­ion for ladies, men, young ladies and young men, with sep­a­rate “store within store” sec­tions for acces­sories, lin­gerie, and sports apparel, and its plus-size line H&M+. This loca­tion will also carry the Swedish retailer’s fan­tas­tic children’s col­lec­tion, which will fea­ture qual­ity cloth­ing for kids of all ages,from new­born to four­teen years.
