History of H&M


Erling Persson, founder of H&M, opened the first Hennes store in Vasteras, Sweden in 1947. Hennes (the Swedish word for “hers”) sold only women’s clothes. In 1968, Persson bought Mauritz Widforss, a hunting store located in Stockholm. A stock of men’s clothing came with the store, so the company began selling both men’s and women’s clothes and changed its name to Hennes and Mauritz. Since 1982, H&M has continued to go through a period of rapid expansion. We now sell clothes and cosmetics in over 620 stores in 13 countries in Europe. We opened the doors of our first two stores in Toronto in March 2004, followed by a further four stores in the autumn.

From the beginning, H&M has created an open and fun work environment that offers workers the chance to express their initiatives and ideas, while stimulating teamwork, communication, and the sharing of responsibilities. In short, it’s a retail fashion atmosphere where employees will continually make a difference.
