H&M to Hollywood

The next step for Swedish-based retailer Hennes & Mauritz will be building a 10,000-square-foot store at 6914 Hollywood Blvd., across the street from the Hollywood & Highland shopping center. An H&M spokeswoman said an opening date has not been scheduled. She also said the retailer has not decided what specific H&M merchandise will be sold there. H&M is on a building spree in California. The company opened two San Francisco stores on Nov. 17, 2005. H&M later announced new store locations in Pasadena and the Beverly Center in Los Angeles. It will also build locations in Walnut Creek and Concord in Northern California.
