Finally the long wait is over! The most awaited shopping store opening not just by fans and shoppers from Cagayan de Oro but as well as those from the neighboring towns is finally happening on the 27th of October 2016. Welcome to Cagayan de Oro City H&M!

H&M Cagayan de Oro

H&M Hennes & Mauritz, Inc. continues its expansion in the southern part of Philippine shores, as it opens what will be its 18th store in the country this month! Opening to an exciting set of new shoppers in the fast-developing city of Cagayan de Oro, the over 1,500-square meter store will open its doors in Centrio Mall on October 27, 2016.

“The response from our Mindanao customers, after we opened our 1st store in Davao just last month, has been incredible! We look forward to catering to even more of the same vibrant shoppers in Cagayan de Oro, as we open in Centrio Mall. We hope to be the city’s destination for fashion and quality at the best price, in a sustainable way,” says Fredrik Famm, Country Manager for South East Asia. “We have also selected a great group of H&M team members to give you the best shopping experience in this store, and we hope you will welcome and embrace them as your own!” he adds.

H&M Centrio CDO

CDO’s first H&M store will carry the full assortment of H&M including ladies, men’s, kids, shoes, accessories and lingerie. It will also feature a full sports, denim and underwear department for both men and ladies. Within all of these the mindful shopper will find an array of Conscious and sustainably-produced products, and offer the option to donate used clothes and get a discount voucher to use for their next purchase under H&M’s Garment Collecting program.

Those shopping on opening day can also expect great offers! Gift cards of varying amounts from P300-P2,000 will be handed out to the first 300 in line, with a special prize of P5,000 for the first. The next 300 will walk away with special H&M umbrellas and tote bags. A special treat also awaits stylish shoppers – 3 of the most fashionable people spotted in the queue before opening will be chosen and given P2,000 Gift Cards each. For everyone else shopping until the weekend, great fashion finds for as low as P300 await.

The store will open on October 27, from 11am-9pm, and regular operating hours from 10am-9pm will resume thereafter.
