Exclusive first look inside H&M Narellan

You used to have to travel to the city to visit the hugely popular retail giant, H&M.

Last year the journey was cut even shorter when the Swedish store opened at Macarthur Square.

Next week, shoppers will only have to travel to Narellan Town Centre to browse those trendy racks for the latest clothes and accessories.

The newest H&M store in Sydney will open alongside 70 other stores at the redeveloped shopping centre on Friday, August 4.

Raby model Kristen Grant helped give the Advertiser a sneak peek inside the clothing store a week out from opening.

“Travelling to the city can be a nightmare,” she said.

“It’s very exciting that H&M is here – they’ve got heaps of stuff that’s affordable and they are local, not in the city or far away.”

The 22-year-old former Robert Townson High School student said she rarely had the opportunity to work in the Macarthur area and she was grateful the opening of H&M allowed her to do so.

She said the store was a great place for shoppers to pick up wardrobe staples.

“They have a lot of really basic pieces that go with everything and I like most of their accessories as well,” she said.

“I love working with H&M.”

The new store will employ about 30 staff members.

Staffers will celebrate the opening of the store at 11am with a choreographer flashmob dance – as per H&M tradition.
