August 3, 2012 • Fashion Blog, Giveaways, Retail Detail

Since Second City Style editors are HUGE proponents of the high-low concept of dressing, we love H&M for their totally on-trend options. Don’t you just love to see MAJOR designer shoes paired with an H&M dress? And how many of us have complimented a friend on something she is wearing only to find out she bought it at H&M? So just imagine how far a $100 or $200 gift card will get you. Read on…

H&M, is thrilled to announce the grand re-opening of its Lexington & 59th Street store on Thursday, August 9th at 10:00am EST. This popular Manhattan location will debut an all new interior that boasts a modern and trendy look.

To celebrate the grand re-opening and the summer season, an H&M pop-up ice cream truck will be hitting the streets surrounding the Lexington & 59th St. store to hand out free ice cream and giveaways to all customers that show a valid H&M receipt. The truck will run on both Thursday August 9th and Friday August 10thfrom 11am-6pm. Additionally, the first 250 shoppers in line on opening day will receive an Access to Fashion gift pass valued from $10-$300, as well as other fantastic giveaways for the entire family!

Second City Style was lucky enough to get our hands on 3 gift cards for $100 and 1 grand prize of a gift card for $200! So what do you need to do to win? You must answer one of the following 2 questions correctly to win a $100 (of those who guessed correctly, you will be randomly chosen). If you answer both correctly, you could be selected to win the $200 gift card Grand Prize! Now here are the rules: You must live in the Tri-State area (H&M requested) although the gift cards may be used at any Tri-State H&M. You must also leave your answer as a comment to this post with your email address & city you reside with your answer. Otherwise we have no way to contact you, should you win.* We will pick and notify the winners on Wednesday, August 8, 2012 at 10am EST. OK, here are the questions:

1. In what year did Hennes & Mauritz (H&M) open their first store?

2. In what year did the H&M on Lexington & 59th first open?

Good luck!

    The first questions is sort of a trick question because there are 2 possible answers. The first store was called just Hennes and it opened in 1947, however, they changed their name to Hennes & Mauritz in 1968 so that would be the first official Hennes & Mauritz store. The H&M on Lexington and 59th opened in 2004.

    The first Hennes store was opened in 1947 in Sweden.

    In 1968, Hennes founder Persson bought Mauritz Widforss and began selling both men’s and women’s clothes, effectively changing its name to Hennes and Mauritz.

    On Oct 22, 2004, H&M opened their 59/Lex store.
