With so many retail stores and restaurants closing, it is a good sign to see that as one major store plans to close … another is preparing to reopen.

According to the Philadelphia Business Journal, as H&M plans to close one of it’s Philadelphia stores, Free People plans to reopen its store right in the mix of the finest shopping district in Center City Philadelphia.

About H&M, The Philadelphia Business Journal said, "Assessing and reviewing our store portfolio to adapt to changing customer behavior is something that we have done ever since we opened our first store," H&M confirmed, further stating that its stores in the Fashion District of Philadelphia and Philadelphia Mills will remain

This directly answers the question that some had about whether H&M was closing all of its stores. They’re not.

Free People is owned by Urban Outfitters, which are based in Philadelphia.

Free People is a women's clothing store that was previously located at 1625 Walnut Street, prior to closing in January, 2022.
