Swedish fast-fashion retailer H&M is preparing to re-open one of its largest locations in the world this week. The CF Toronto Eaton Centre flagship will feature an expanded assortment of product categories, spanning three levels and about 52,500 square feet. 

Although parts of the expanded store have been open for days, the store’s second level, 3,200 square foot Home Collection department will open along with the formal store re-opening on Thursday, February 25. The store will be the second in Canada to feature H&M’s Home Collection, following the summer of 2014 Canadian debut at H&M in West Edmonton Mall


Eaton Centre’s H&M opened in the fall of 2004 and at the time, measured about 33,000 square feet over three floors. 

H&M anchors the north end of CF Toronto Eaton Centre, featuring a prominent presence at the busy corner of Yonge Street and Dundas Street. In the fall of 2016, the store will be joined by Japanese fashion retailer Uniqlo, which will open a 28,000 square foot store between H&M and Nordstrom. The 220,000 square foot Nordstrom flagship is set to open its Eaton Centre store on September 16, with a charity gala to be held two days prior. Rumours continue to persist that an Apple Store flagship store will open nearby, and sources say that a recent increase in hiring indicates that possibility.
