H&M's Fast-Fashion Takeover Of D.C. Is Almost Complete
It’s official: H&M
is having a Washington moment right about now. The global retailer just announced plans for a new store at Union Station
, set to open this spring, in addition to the brand-new outpost in Friendship Heights and a revamped Georgetown mall store coming in the fall. By the end of 2013, the District will have a whopping four H&M stores
— the closest competitor is Zara, with a measly two stores inside city limits. And while there are rumors of a Topshop and Uniqlo headed to the CityCenterDC development, those are still just
rumors at this point. What do you think: Is there such a thing as too much fast-fashion for one town? Or is there always room for more dirt-cheap duds?
