H&M, Hennes & Mauritz AB, is opening a new store in Witney's Woolgate Shopping Centre Shopping Centre, located at the back of the centre, on Thursday 21st April at 11am. The new store will feature H&M’s collections for women and children, with new items arriving in store daily. To celebrate the opening the first 100 customers will receive an H&M gift card ranging in value from £5 - £50 to spend in the new store!

"We are excited to be arriving in the thriving market town of Witney this spring, just in time for Easter," says Magnus Olsson, H&M's Country Manager for the UK and Ireland. “The Woolgate Shopping Centre is a perfect location for our new store, allowing us to expand our presence in Oxfordshire. We are looking forward to showcasing our spring/summer collections for women and children and hope that they will be well received.”

Occupying 670 square metres, the store will employ approximately 20 members of staff and will carry a varied range of H&M collections for women and children, with everything from modern basics to the very latest international trends, including coordinated accessories – and all at wallet-friendly prices. To celebrate H&M's arrival in Witney, in addition to the special opening offer for the first 100 customers, there will be gifts with purchases on opening day, while quantities last.

Right now fashion is all about reinventing classic favourites, restyling those key pieces to feel completely new. For women's wear this season there's a particular focus on the mood of the 60s and 70s, with brightly coloured shapes that are short and sharp alongside a more romantic silhouette that is long and elegant. At H&M we are proud to continue working with sustainable materials to make fashion forward clothes that will soon be timeless. The Conscious Collection, a collection for women, men and children made from more sustainable materials such as organic cotton, Tencel® and recycled polyester will be on sale in all H&M stores from 14th April, including the new Witney location (the women's and children's wear Conscious Collection only will be available in Witney) .

H&M launched in the UK in 1976 and currently has 184 stores nationwide. The H&M Group has more than 2,200 stores in 38 different markets.
