Sydney is getting an H&M. But it’ll take you two trains and a bus to get there.

H&M is FINALLY coming to Sydney, but the store is not in the suburb you’d expect.

It won’t be opening in Pitt St Mall along with other international fashion retail giants Zara and Topshop. It’s not at Bondi Junction and it’s not at Chatswood either.

Sydney’s first H&M store will be 15kms from the city in the Macquarie Centre in North Ryde.

This is H&M’s second Australian store, and the Macquarie Centre is undergoing a $440-million redevelopment (hopefully they’ll ditch the ramps) including Victoria’s Secret, Zara, Forever 21 and H&M.

Macquarie Centre’s other claim to fame is an ice skating rink and an Intensity, along with a bunch of confusing levels and ramps. Ask any Sydneysider who grew up on the North side, and they’ll tell you it’s where they hung out on a Friday night. That blue light disco and limbo on the ice skating rink was THE place to be in the early 2000s.

Stay tuned for opening dates.
