In the previous article we shared with you some shopping secrets from a former H&M employee. She was talking about the best time for shopping, how you can get a discount or about their weird sizes. In this article we have for you some more tips!
“H&M is like the Mecca of basics,“ Ashley Cooke, former H&M employee, says. She advises you to buy basics a month ahead of the new season. Do you need sweatshirt for Fall? Begin shopping in August. Do you want new t-shirts for Spring? Start checking in February. She adds: “New and fresh basic pieces are often made better, but the store receives less and doesn't always replenish.“ At H&M you can shop the best basic pieces for every occasion.
Use filters while shopping online
“You can find on-trend items by filtering your search to "Trend." These items are often on sale and not always featured in store. Another thing to mention about new items found online: they are found in store two to three weeks after being featured on the website. If it's a more one-of-a-kind piece, maybe even longer or not at all,“ says Ashley.
Know the Sales
Big sales happen at the end of every season. Ashley advises you to shop a few weeks ahead of the seasonal turnover: “Items that have been around the longest, usually toward the back of each concept's section, are more likely to be marked down first. Markdowns happen almost weekly during the time of the sale, so continue to check back.“
These are some advices how to shop clever at the stores H&M.
