H&M To Open In State College This Fall

Out with the old and in with the new.

A week after the permanent closing of downtown State College’s Abercrombie & Fitch, Centre Daily Times first reported that clothing store H&M will open this fall. The Fraser Centre south of Memorial Field will play host to the new retailer, though an exact date for the opening has not yet been announced.

We claimed that H&M is one of 10 stores State College needs two and half years ago, and we finally got our wish.

H&M is the second-largest clothing retailer in the world, behind Intidex and in front of Gap. Its website says that its goal is “Fashion and quality at the best price in a sustainable way.” There’s a page dedicated to its sustainability efforts, which range from protecting human rights to encouraging customers to be climate smart (wash at low temperatures and consider skipping the dryer) and keeping its doors open for unwanted clothes, hangars, packaging, and shopping bags to be reused or recycled rather than thrown away.

About its store expansion, H&M says, “Our stores should always be in the best locations for business. By leasing store premises instead of owning them we remain flexible in a constantly evolving retail landscape, and can make sure we are represented in the most attractive streets and shopping centres in all our markets.”

As the Centre Daily Times notes, the current closest H&M is two hours away in Lancaster. Fashion for the whole family is about to get easier when the retailer opens its first State College store.
