Eastbourne’s H&M has announced a new official opening date.

The store, which is set to be the first to be unveiled in the Arndale’s multi-million pound extension, will open its doors on Friday (October 12) at 11am.

The first 200 people in the queue will receive a goodie bag and all customers in the queue before 11am will receive 25 per cent off their entire purchase in store.

Toni Galli, H&M’s manager for UK & IE, said, “We are delighted to be opening a brand new store at The Arndale Shopping Centre.

“Providing our customers with the best shopping experience possible is always our goal and we are confident that our new Eastbourne store will offer exactly this.”

The fashion retailer had been set to open on September 28, but this was cancelled days before as H&M said it wanted to deliver the ‘best customer experience’.
