Calling all fashionistas and fans of H&M in Singapore.
We have bad news.
Another H&M outlet in Singapore will be shutting its doors permanently in the near future.
H&M ION Orchard Outlet Will Be Closing
H&M recently announced in a Facebook post that its outlet at ION Orchard will be closing in slightly over a month’s time, on 12 March 2023.
This outlet, the second H&M outlet in Singapore, has operated for 10 years in Singapore. It opened back in 2012.
Before the waterworks starts, know that all is not lost. H&M also teased that it will meet customers in “other places” though no further details were shared.
Readers can also continue to get their shopping haul at the other eight operating H&M outlets, namely JEM, Kallang Wave Mall, NEX, Orchard Building, Paya Lebar Quarter, Suntec City, United Square and Vivo City.
H&M Singapore is also available online for those of you who prefer shopping in the comfort of your homes.
And it’s not like the Orchard Road stretch is missing a H&M outlet. The flagship H&M store in Singapore is a short walk away, at Orchard Building. This four-storey mega shop is the largest in Southeast Asia, so there will still be plenty of options to choose from.
Store closures are typically sad news, but the Singaporean in me can’t help but wonder, will there be a closing down sale?
Recycle Clothes At H&M
We’re with you if you want to stock up on H&M clothes before the outlet at ION Orchard closes.
Fret not if you have too many clothes in your closet (we’re looking at all of you who didn’t clear your closets before the Chinese New Year festivities), it’s not too late to clear some space in your wardrobe.
H&M runs a recycling initiative, a Garment Collecting programme, to collect old, unwanted clothes for them to be given a chance at a new lease of life. It was rolled out globally in 2013.
This is how it works:
- Sort out the old clothes and textiles you wish to donate. These can be in any condition and from any brand.
- Bag the clothes and bring the bag to any H&M store. Let the staff know that you’re recycling the clothes.
- Drop off your old clothes and receive a thank you voucher for your next purchase.
Simple, fuss-free efforts for the environment have never been easier to take. Why not kill two birds with one stone and consider donating a bag of clothes the next time you get your shopping fix at H&M?
