Today is a big day for shoppers here in Northeast Florida.

And just in time for the busy Back to School shopping season – the Jacksonville, Florida store location will also carry the Swedish retailer’s children’s collection, featuring quality clothing for kids ages newborn to fourteen.

I’m excited to get Maggie and Molly some fancy (and affordable) clothes! Check out this picture of their cute clothes!

H & M’s newest store, here in Jacksonville is located at Center Court at The Avenues Mall and the doors open September 6th at noon!

The first 200 shoppers in line get an H&M t-shirt and Access to Fashion Pass, valued from $10 to $300, in addition to other fantastic opening offers for the whole family!
