H&M Flagship to open at Forum Shops

The largest H&M store in the country will open at the Forum Shops this fall. It will take the place of the recently closed FAO Schwarz store, which had been at Caesars Palace since 1997 with the signature Trojan horse display out front.

Las Vegas already is home to two H&M locations, one at the Miracle Mile Shops and one at Town Square. Ever since this announcement there has been questions about how a low priced retailer like H&M would be able to make much money at the ultra high end Forum Shops. I think it just might work. A lot of people pass through the Forum Shops and most of them don't have the money to buy the really expensive stuff, but might want to buy something at a lower cost - especially in this economy where tourists in Vegas are tending to spend less.
