H&M Opening Causes Hong Kong Stampede

Hennes & Mauritz, the venerable Swedish fashion house known as H&M, opened a new store in Hong Kong over the weekend — that was so popular, it required crowd control.  Nearly 1,000 shoppers started lining up outside the new store at 5 am.  Why?  Because the first 500 shoppers were promised a pair of M by Madonna sunglasses.  The Hong Kong store is debuting the Madonna label, and several lucky shoppers were even given jackets signed by the Material Girl.

H&M, often called the “Ikea of Fashion,” H&M offers stylish, of-the-moment clothes at discount prices.  With more than 1,200 stores in 25 countries, the 60-year-old retailer continues to prove that fashionable women clearly love a bargain.
