Popular clothing store H&M opens at Opry Mills

Posted: Updated:

Fashionistas across Nashville are finally breathing a sigh of relief as popular Swedish clothing company H&M opened the doors to its much-anticipated store at Opry Mills.

Nashville is the 34th city to have one of these stores. Hennes & Mauritz, commonly known as H&M, is known for fashion-forward clothes at budget-friendly prices.

"I love this store. I've been going to H&Ms all across the country. I play music and travel, and every time we're in a major city, I got to go to H&M," said shopper Blair Gilley.

Hundreds of shoppers lined up hours before H&M opened Wednesday morning, and early shoppers even got help from a celebrity stylist.

This H&M store measures approximately 25,000 square-feet and has been in the works for more than a year.

The Metro Codes department issued a $1.45 million building permit to the company in February.

A spokesperson said the company designed and built the store with the people of Middle Tennessee in mind.

"We are committed to opening in the best locations throughout the United States, and the Southeast is a big area of focus for us," says Daniel Kulle, U.S. President for H&M. "We are excited that our first location in Tennessee will be in the state capital. We welcome Nashville to the H&M family and look forward to opening in a city with such strong culture."

If you weren't able to make it out to the grand opening, the celebration continues all weekend long.
