The wait is finally over!

According to the Coral Ridge Mall Facebook page, the highly-anticipated new H&M store is officially open for business! And from the looks of it, a lot of people are excited...

H&M is a very popular clothing store for men, women, and children alike. Coral Ridge Mall's website reads:

"H&M offers a broad and varied range that allows customers to find their own personal style. The collections are created with H&M's broad clientele in mind and the aim is to satisfy many different tastes and requirements. The range includes everything from modern basics to high fashion reflecting the very latest international trends. The collections are supplemented by matching accessories, nightwear, underwear and cosmetics."

We found out back in March that there was no set opening date for the Coral Ridge Mall location, but that they hoped to be open by May. But then on April 2nd, it was revealed that the 15th would be the official grand opening.

The new store is located in the mall next to American Eagle and is only the second location to open here in the state of Iowa. The other one is at NorthPark Mall in Davenport.

When I moved to Iowa from Michigan back in 2014, I was very disappointed to see that there were no H&M locations in the area. It's one of my favorite stores to buy sweaters and t-shirts! It's nice to know that I don't have to drive more than 25 minutes to shop there now.
