The opening date for Kettering’s new H&M store has been revealed.

Shoppers will soon be able to get their hands on the latest lines from the clothing brand which is opening a shop in the former WHSmiths unit in the Newlands Centre on December 1.

The new store will have 1,462 sqm of sales space and offer lines for ladies, menswear, Divided and kidswear.

Customers in the queue before 11am will receive a 25 per cent discount wristband to spend in store throughout the opening day, with entertainment provided by the in-store DJ.

Carlos Duarte from H&M said: “We are delighted to be opening a new store in Kettering.

“We hope to bring our exciting quality fashion to new and existing customers in time for the festive season.

“H&M offers something for everyone, no matter their age, budget or personal style.”

The opening of the new Kettering store will come just weeks after the re-opening of Corby’s extended store.

The bigger store in Willow Place, Corby, is due to re-open on November 12.

Following its expansion, the sales space has grown to 1,632 sqm including ladies, menswear, Divided and kidswear.

Customers in the queue before 10am will receive a 25 per cent discount wristband to spend in store throughout opening day.

Mr Duarte said: “We are excited to extend our offering to the Corby customer.

“With the addition of extra lines we hope to offer something for everyone, no matter their age, budget or personal style.”

Founded in Sweden in 1947, H&M opened its first UK store in 1976.

Forty years later, the UK and Ireland portfolio has grown to include more than 60 stores.
