H&M reopens ‘elevated’ Angel Central store after refurbishment

31st October 2022 | Jack Oliver

Fashion retailer H&M has reopened its Angel Central store in Islington, which now offers its H&M HOME concept, ‘experiential services’, and a new interior.

The renovated store features click-and-collect lockers as well as self-service checkouts as the company looks to create a ‘seamless customer experience’.

Christopher Clare, the H&M UK & IE expansion manager, said that H&M Angel Central “will create a welcoming, modern and meaningful shopping experience where style, creativity and culture are celebrated.”

The Swedish company opened its first UK store in 1976 and its portfolio currently includes over 200 stores in the UK and Ireland.

The retailer aims to promote sustainability as its looks to encourage a ‘transition to circular, climate positive fashion.’ The Islington store will offer H&M’s garment collection and recycling service, launched in 2013, which allows customers to donate unwanted clothes and textiles.

Ciara Duffy, asset manager at CBRE Investment Management, said: “H&M has been an important retail anchor at Angel Central for many years, and has built a solid foundation within the community of Islington. The brand’s refurbishment elevates the store with a refreshed interior and enhanced customer experience, and its emphasis and focus on sustainability very much mirrors the ethos of Angel Central. We’re confident that this brand will continue to thrive and prosper within our revitalised scheme.”
