H&M, Hennes & Mauritz, one of the world's largest fashion retailers, will hold the grand reopening of its Woodfield Mall store at 10 a.m. Thursday.
The 27,000-square-foot store, first opened at Woodfield in 2003, recently underwent a three-month renovation and now features a new interior, fixtures and facade.
The retailer is the first fashion company to roll out a global garment recycling program. Through the initiative, H&M customers at Woodfield can help save natural resources and contribute to reduced environmental impact by donating old and unwanted pieces of clothing from any brand. For each bag of clothing donated, customers will receive a voucher for 15 percent off an item of their choice on their next purchase.
The first 200 shoppers in line Thursday will receive an H&M T-shirt and Access to Fashion Pass, valued from $10 to $300, in addition to other opening offers and giveaways.
H&M was established in Sweden in 1947. Today there are 275 stores in the U.S. and approximately 2,900 H&M stores in 49 markets worldwide.
