You may want to start contemplating your fall fast fashion wardrobe, because H&M is finally opening a store in The Galleria.

The big move brings the number of H&M stores to four in the Houston area, but The Galleria location is the first one not located in some far-flung mall. H&M currently has stores in the Baybrook and Willowbrook Malls, and another store is slated to open in Katy Mills Mall in the fall.

This is what many Houston fashionistas have long been waiting for — and waiting, and waiting. The long vigil will end this fall when the H&M Galleria store opens.

The new store will be a 20,000-square-foot space offering collections for women, men, young women and young men, plus accessories, lingerie and the plus-size line, H&M+.

H&M’s Galleria arrival is one of many new retailers heading to the mall in the coming months. Look for Zara, a Spanish fast fashion import, to reveal its own new two-story space in Galleria II in the fall.
