H&M Opens its First Store in Broward County, FL
Hennes & Mauritz, better known as H&M, has unloaded the moving trucks and are now residents of Broward County. To be more specific, H&M has opened a location in Pembroke Lakes Mall in Pembroke Pines, FL on Thursday, September 26, 2013.
The grand opening brought out HUNDREDS to Pembroke Lakes Mall. People were in line from 6:30am just to be one of the first hundred who would receive giveaways. I got excited just because everyone else were excited. See, I’m one of the last people on earth to buy anything from H&M. I remember seeing the excitement from Florida residents about the first store opening in Palm Beach County. I had friends who planned road trips to this store. Then the Miami-Dade County stores opened and there was more excitement. Now that H&M is in Pembroke Lakes Mall, which is centrally located between the other 2 counties and is close to Interstate 75 and the Turnpike.
