Not all clothing stores are created equal, but H&M knows why it's so popular with shoppers of all ages. How else could the company get everyone from David Beckham, to Katy Perry, to Kendall Jenner to represent the brand? Whether you're already planning on shopping there or not, it's good to know that H&M will open on Christmas Eve to serve those of us who still need to buy a last minute gift or two for our loved ones.
Even though the company decided to close its doors for Thanksgiving this year, most H&M stores are in business on the day before Christmas. I contacted H&M's Hollywood store, who informed me that they will be open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Christmas Eve. Across town, the H&M at the Americana in Glendale will welcome shoppers from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. Those extended hours are pretty unheard of around the holiday season, but it's also not surprising since this store is located in one of the most popular and busiest shopping centers in the L.A. area.
Of course, to make sure that you don't end up going to a closed H&M location on Christmas Eve wherever you're located in the country, contact your local store in advance and find out what their holiday hours are. It's also good to check out hm.com for some online shopping (especially if you'd rather check off those Christmas gifts with the click of a button).
Clothes that look like they came straight from the Fashion Week runways? Check. Comfortable pieces that are necessary for every wardrobe? Check. Here are more reasons why I'll be doing some last minute shopping at H&M on Christmas Eve this year:
1. The Happy & Merry Collection
Pick up a festive gift or even something for yourself in H&M's holiday-inspired collection starring Katy Perry.
2. Affordable Prices
It's so easy to put together a complete outfit at H&M and still have money left over for more shopping.
3. Designer Collaborations
I shopped my fair share from the Balmain x H&M collection, but if you're lucky enough to find an item or two from your local store, buy it.
4. The Selection
Whether you're looking to buy a last minute gift or treating yourself to some holiday retail therapy, H&M truly is a one-stop shop for a variety of affordable and stylish pieces. Happy shopping!
