H&M will nearly double in size with big expansion at MOA

It'll be a 40,000 square-foot store beginning this fall.

The Mall of America's H&M store will nearly double in size when its expansion plans are completed in time for fall shopping. 

MOA announced the news Friday, saying H&M will expand into a two-story store on the north wing of the mall, growing from its current 25,800 square-feet to 40,000 square-feet. 

More room means more options for everyone, especially for men and kids, the MOA release says, in addition to expanded selections in women's trends and men's modern classic concepts. 

Expansion news comes just 48 hours after national media including the Washington Post reported the Swedish retailer has about $4 billion in outdated merchandise from Christmas and Halloween, and that its profits are at a 16-year low. 

The reports say H&M is struggling because millennials are "more interested in buying well-made clothes than in buying cheap items." 

That's one way to describe H&M's clothing, but the company's business model is built on delivering "fashion and quality at the best price." 

Regardless, the expansion at MOA will be ready about the same time a new, 20,000 square-foot H&M store opens in Woodbury
