Cheap chic fash­ion re­tailer H&M is plan­ning to open a 20,000-square-foot store in South­park Mall in Colo­nial Heights in spring 2019.

“H&M has ex­pe­ri­enced a warm wel­come from cus­tomers and fans in Vir­ginia and is happy to con­tinue to ex­pand its store and em­ployee count in the state,” said a com­pany press re­lease about the new store.

H&M en­tered the Rich­mond mar­ket in 2003 when it opened a one-level store at Short Pump Town Cen­ter in western Hen­rico County. It added a sec­ond level to its store in 2011, now oc­cu­py­ing a to­tal of about 21,000 square feet.

It opened a 22,000-square-foot store at Ch­ester­field Town Cen­ter in Novem­ber 2015, and a 20,000-square-foot store in Stony Point Fash­ion Park in Rich­mond in De­cem­ber.

The South­park Mall store will carry cloth­ing for ladies, men and teens, and will carry the H&M Kids col­lec­tion for new­borns to 14-year-olds.

The store will be lo­cated ad­ja­cent to Kay Jewelers in the mid­dle of the mall.

“We are elated to add this pop­u­lar, trend­set­ting fash­ion store to South­park Mall. It is a highly an­tic­i­pated ad­di­tion that has topped our cus­tomers’ wish list,” said Greg Bi­a­s­tock, mall gen­eral man­ager.

South­park Mall, an­chored by a Macy’s, J.C. Pen­ney and Re­gal Cine­mas, is lo­cated at 230 South­park Cir­cle. The mall is owned by Chat­tanooga, Tenn.based CBL Prop­er­ties.

H&M, short for Hennes & Mau­ritz Inc., was founded in Sweden in 1947. H&M has more than 500 U.S. lo­ca­tions and more than 4,700 lo­ca­tions glob­ally.
