Charlotte H&M stores opening in November and December

The first two Charlotte-area H&M stores are set to open in November and December, with Northlake Mall's store opening first, followed by the Carolina Place location.

Northlake's grand opening is scheduled for noon on Thursday, Nov. 14. The event will feature giveaways and music, Northlake said.

The Carolina Place store will open in early December, though an exact date hasn't been set, a mall representative said.

In terms of size, the Northlake store will be larger than the Carolina Place store, clocking in at 25,600 square feet. It's located in the former Borders bookstore at Northlake. The Carolina Place store will be 17,000 square feet.

Building permits show H&M is spending a substantial amount to upgrade and renovate both stores. At Northlake, permits show H&M is spending about $2 million on the new store. And at Carolina Place, the fast-fashion retailer is investing about $2.5 million.

1. It sure would be nice to know what H&M sells!

2. That cannot be a rendering of the Northlake store, since Borders was NOT a free-standing building!

Here's a link to an image of the original Border's store. Looks like the same space to me!

@Curmudgeon Have you not been by there lately? They have done an insane amount of work - made me wonder why they even wanted Borders space to begin with, because they basically demolished it anyway.

H&M made a great choice in Northlake.. Prominent location, close to UNC, tons of young adults and young families in the area.. They know exactly what they are doing.. I for one am very excited they chose Northlake and North Charlotte.. Makes perfect since!!
