The new H&M location is set to offer Michigan City residents a one-stop shopping destination for quality clothing for the whole family, with collections for ladies, men and teens, as well as separate “store within a store” sections for accessories. The Lighthouse Place Premium Outlets location will also carry the H&M Kids collection for newborns to 14-year-olds. The breadth and variety of H&M collections is expected to make it easier for any consumer to find fashionable products, no matter their personal style.
