As part of its $35 million makeover, The Outlet Collection Seattle, the donut-shaped mall at the intersection of highways 167 and 18 in Auburn, formerly known as the Supermall, is adding Swedish fashion retailer H&M to its repertoire of stores.
H&M, Hennes & Mauritz, will open the new 23,000-square-foot store this fall. H&M, which opened its first store in the U.S. 13 years ago on New York’s Fifth Avenue, has 2,800 stores in 49 countries.
The Outlet Collection store will include fashions for women, men, young men and young women with separate “stores within a store” for accessories, the retailer said. The Auburn store will also carry children’s clothing.
H&M already has five Puget Sound area stores: downtown Seattle, Tacoma Mall, Southcenter, Alderwood Mall and University Village.
The Outlet Collection’s owners are spending $35 million to update the mall with new entrances, new flooring and a new mid-mall connection to speed up the trip from one side of the torus-shaped building to the other.
