Swedish fashion chain H&M to open in Ireland

NICK WEBB HIP swivellingly slick Swedish fashion chain Hennes & Mauritz (H&M) is thought to be close to inking a deal to open a major outlet at the Green Property's Blanchardstown centre.

Such is the clout of H&M that it was able to include the likes of Hollywood stars Benicio Del Toro, Selma Hayek and Johnny Depp in its high-profile promotionalcampaigns.

H&M is also understood to be eyeing up a slot at the new Dundrum shopping centre when it opens in 2005, with House of Fraser as anchor tenants. It has been rumoured that H&M is also looking for a prime city centre spot. H&M declined to comment.

Inditex, the fashion retailer owned by Armancio Ortega, Spain's richest man, has been a massive success since opening in Ireland last year. The Spanish group is also set to roll out its teenage-geared Berskha chain of stores in Ireland, with agreement close on a site in the Blanchardstown centre.
