Last week I attended the opening of the new H&M at Metropolis in Burnaby.
First off, it's about time!! I've been wanting an H&M at Metropolis since.....well, since H&M came to Vancouver.
Second, great event! The event was a private shopping / social event. Guests were provided cocktails and (amazing!) canapés while they shopped in a low-stress environment. Why can't shopping be like that more often??!
The store itself, isn't as big as the Pacific Centre location, but it feels so much bigger for some reason. The lighting was great, the staff were friendly, and it seemed so open. The H&M space occupies 2 levels, right across from Forever 21.
Thanks to LJ PR for organizing such a lovely event and to H&M Canada for hosting us!
