Clothing Store H&M to Open Israel Flagship on March 11

Last week GAP also opened its first store in Israel; both stores located in Azrieli towers, Tel Aviv.

The first H&M clothing store in Israel is due to open on March 11 at 11:00A.M., the chain's spokesman in Israel said on Tuesday.

The store will be located on the third floor of the Azrieli shopping mall in Tel Aviv, and will take up more than 2,000 square meters.

The store will include departments for women, men, children, accessories, shoes and lingerie. The cosmetics department will not be included.

The international chain store is set to open just two and a half weeks after the country's first GAP store opened in Tel Aviv, also in the Azrieli Mall.

H&M, a Swedish owned company, has already signed contracts for six more locations in Israel, including Jerusalem, Haifa, Petah Tikva, Netanya, and Rehovot.
