H&M opening at outlet mall in Mercedes

H&M, an international clothing store, prepares to open its third Rio Grande Valley location this month in Mercedes.

The store will be located at the Rio Grande Valley Premium Outlets, joining Saks Fifth Avenue Off 5th, Gap Outlet, Banana Republic Factory and Express Factory Outlet, among others.

The 25,000 square-foot store in Mercedes will open at noon on Oct. 25.

H&M has opened 42 stores in Texas, including ones in Brownsville and McAllen.

The company added a store last year at La Plaza Mall in McAllen as part of the mall’s expansion.

H&M plans to hire about 20 employees for its Mercedes store, according to a public relations firm representing the outlet mall.
