ARKET to open Swedish store

H&M has unveiled plans to open an ARKET store in Stockholm next spring following the launch of the brand in London’s Regent Street as well as online.

Other planned openings following the London launch include Brussels, Copenhagen and Munich.

Situated in the heart of Stockholm’s Bibliotekstan shopping district, ARKET will offer clothing for men, women and children as well as a selection of homewares. The store will also include a café.

The shop will be housed in a building that dates from 1897 and boasts a number of distinctive features in Sweden’s ‘National Romantic’ style. The store also has an interesting history as it was home to the original shop of Svenska Hem (Swedish Home), the women’s food cooperative founded in 1905 by Swedish educator and women’s suffragist Anna Whitlock.

"We are very fortunate to be opening our first hometown store on Biblioteksgatan, where we’ll find ourselves in great company," said ARKET managing director Lars Axelsson. "The Stockholm ARKET store opens spring 2018, but the brand will be present online in Sweden as well as 17 other countries from the first day of our launch on Regent Street in London this autumn."
