BLOOMINGTON — A new clothing store is set to open next month at Eastland Mall in Bloomington.

Family clothing retailer H&M announced Tuesday that it plans to open its new store at noon Oct. 4.

With its new location at Eastland, H&M will have 21 retail stores in Illinois.

"H&M has experienced a warm welcome from customers and fans in Illinois and is happy to continue to expand its store and employee count in the state," the company said in a statement.  

The store will employ around 20 workers.

"H&M looks at retail as a career and not just a job," said the company. "We pride ourselves on our support of local economies by adding jobs with each new location."

To celebrate the new store, customers can line up before noon on opening day for a chance to win an H&M Fashion Pass valued at up to $500, while supplies last, in addition to other surprise offers, said the company.

The same day, customers can enter to win gift cards valued at $50 to $250.  

H&M's hours will be 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and noon to 6 p.m. Sunday.

In 2017, H&M was the highest ranked fashion retailer on Forbes America’s Best Employers list and appeared on Business of Fashion’s list of Best Companies to Work for in Fashion.
