The new H&M store at Elliott’s Field in Rugby opened its doors for the first time today, and I was super excited to be a part of the launch! It was fun being able to have a look around the store before it officially opened, watching the staff perform a dance routine for all the customers patiently waiting for the red ribbon to be cut, and see everyone smiling as they entered the new shop with a DJ, a face painter and balloon-modeller!
Here’s a timelapse video of some of the first customers to walk through to doors.
It’s the final store (of confirmed stores so far) to open in the new Elliott’s Field shopping park and again, another welcome addition to the town! There were lots of other parents and grandparents entering the store this morning, and like me, they were probably quite happy to see such a big childrenswear department! Taking up the majority of the first floor space, there is a good range of both boys and girlswear, as well as an adorable selection of babywear, and then a smaller section of menswear. On the groundfloor, there is womenswear, lingerie, shoes and accessories, and most importantly at this time of year – plenty Christmas jumpers!
