The trendy retailer H&M will occupy retail space this fall in the Minneapolis shopping center Calhoun Square, according to the Star Tribune. H&M will take up 10 percent of the center's retail space.
Calhoun Square is located in "Uptown's downtown", and the new addition will inject a dash of optimism in the stagnant retail economy. The shopping center has suffered economically during the recession, and major stores in the area have relocated in recent years.
Despite the advantages it can bring to the local economy, some retailers in the area have said they wish the space would be used by an independent company.
According to Kare 11, the new Uptown edition will be H&M's fifth location in Minnesota.
