I had a blast hanging out with some really awesome people at H&M, at Northpark Mall in Ridgeland, this past Thursday, and I felt so honored to be a part of the grand opening! This is the first store they've planted in the 'Sip and hopefully not the last! A few weeks ago, I was asked by H&M to help host the opening by blogging about it and hosting a Twitter contest. The first 5 people to tweet back at me won a head-to-toe outfit! Also, folks waiting in line each got an Access to Fashion Pass worth anywhere from $10-$300! Needless to say, everyone out there was super excited and anxiously waiting to get in!
Around thirty minutes before they opened, the dj started playing and the sales associates gathered up and danced at the front of the store to get the shoppers even more pumped up. It was wild! Then, right at 12 o' clock, the ribbon was cut, everyone screamed, and shoppers poured in by the hundreds! There were so many ridiculously good deals going on in the store that I'm sure by the end of the day, that store was empty. Hangers were left swinging on empty racks, and this was by the time I left, only half an hour after the opening! I would've grabbed some things for myself while I was there, but I could hardly move around because of the massive crowd that filled the store. Seriously, it was intense... but I had so much fun, and I know everyone else did too!
If you're ever in the Jackson area, you should definitely stop by that store! They always have great deals on the cutest clothing and accessories.
