H&M have announced the launch of H&M located in The Springs, Thorpe Park, Leeds. Covering a floor space in excess of 1544 sq m, based over 2 floors, the store will open its doors to customers at 11am on Thursday 11th October.
With full ladies, divided, kids and men’s concepts available, this new store will provide great quality fashion, at affordable prices, in a sustainable way. On launch morning, the first 200 lucky customers in the queue will receive an exclusive goodie bag.
“We are delighted to be opening a brand new store at The Springs, Thorpe Park, Leeds this October. We aim to provide our customers with the best shopping experience possible and we are confident that our new Leeds store will offer exactly this” said Toni Galli, H&M’s Country Manager for UK & IE
Founded in Sweden in 1947, H&M opened its first UK store in 1976. Forty years later, the UK and Ireland portfolio has grown to include in excess of 264 stores.
With sustainability at the heart of its business model, H&M offers a garment collecting service worldwide. The H&M garment collecting scheme was launched in 2013 and offers customers the chance to donate any unwanted clothes and textiles, by any brand, whilst shopping in-store. All donated items are recycled with 0% going to landfill. The H&M garment collecting scheme is just one example of the many projects H&M has implemented to lead the change towards 100% circularity.
Thorpe Park Leeds is an established business location with 800,000 sq ft of development built and occupied to date, including 600,000 sq ft of offices. A unique £162 million investment deal with Legal & General Capital in 2015 secured a transformational 1.35 million sq ft mixed-use expansion, bringing forward exceptional new business opportunities to the Leeds City Region.
Phase two includes the 350,000 sq ft retail and leisure park as well as a further 900,000 sq ft of Grade A office accommodation, 300 new residential homes by Redrow and a 113-acre public park with sports facilities.
Phase two also includes delivery of the first section of the ‘East Leeds Orbital Road’, a key piece of infrastructure connecting north and east Leeds to Junction 46 of the M1. This road will unlock land for the construction of up to 7,000 new homes in the East Leeds area, land that is either already allocated in the Local Plan or which is ‘brownfield’ land.
The award-winning development has dedicated access to Junction 46 of the M1 and has been chosen for the new railway station, ‘East Leeds Parkway’ and associated Park and Ride, connecting Thorpe Park Leeds directly to Leeds city centre in eight minutes. This forms part of a £270 million infrastructure investment into Leeds by the Department of Transport.
