H & M To Open Around Polo Park
They teased about it in 2009 and put up classified ads seeking employees but ultimately H&M backed away from moving into Polo Park.
Last Thursday, they tweeted that they were coming and Polo Park was mentioned again. However, there is no room at Polo Park for a store that size unless they locate into the old McNally Robinson site. The site that H&M rejected in Polo Park is now occupied by Forever 21.
This would seem to indicate that H&M is probably locating in one of the power center malls in and around Polo Park.
The arrival of H&M would be another check off a list of stores Winnipeggers have wanted for some time.
