H&M's Biggest Store Ever Is Going To Be In NYC

Ashley Lutz

H&M's largest store is currently in Las Vegas. 

But that's about to change, according to Izzy Grinspan at Racked. The fast-fashion retailer just signed a lease for a 57,000 square foot property at 5th Avenue and 48th street. 

The location is close to the shops on 5th avenue that are constantly inundated with tourists. H&M already has a store in the area, and it's constantly packed. 

Racked offers some insight into why the brand is making the move: 

"Why does H&M need a monster store just three blocks from its current location at  640 Fifth Avenue ? Well, there's the question of storage. This new space will carry  all of the brand's collections , including lingerie, baby clothes, and housewares. The company also believes opening multiple stores near each other "increases foot traffic," as one spokesperson told Women's Wear Daily . Then there's the possibility that 640 Fifth won't be around much longer. Last month, we  heard a rumor  that H&M would be moving out once the rent goes up in 2014."

Did you know that H&M has housewares? We didn't. 

We'll follow up with a full tour when the store opens.
