London - H&M's newest brand, Arket, is set to open its first store in the Netherlands next spring. The flagship store will be located in the capital city of Amsterdam, at Koningsplein 20. An official opening date has yet to be confirmed, said a spokesperson to FashionUnited NL.
The new Arket flagship store will span 1,000 square meters, spread over three floors. In addition to offering Arket's apparel, accessories, and interior collections, the store will also be home to a cafe, which will be based on Arket's New Nordic Food Manifesto. "We are very happy to be opening our first Arket store in the Netherlands at such an amazing location on Koningsplein in Amsterdam", said CEO Lars Axelsson in a statement. "Although the store is not set to open until next spring, Arket is already available online in the Netherlands and 17 other countries."
The store is located in the vicinity of H&M's group other retail chain & Other Stories, which the Swedish fashion group launched in 2013. The opening of the store follows on from Arket's previous store openings in London, Copenhagen, and Brussels earlier this year. In addition to opening its first store in the Netherlands next year, Arket is also set to open stores in Stockholm and Munchen this month.
