Fashion giant H&M set to open shop in Cumbrian town centre

Clothing giant H&M is taking over four empty shop units in Workington town centre.

Have your say

I don't want to be one to moan, but is there away for us to put it to h and m that maybe a men's department would actually be great and could actually strive as if you don't like Chav world (sports direct) and middle aged to old appeal (debahnams) there ain't anywhere to shop but yes it's great that there has been the opputunity for jobs

Lets hope they have a mens department because the one in Carlisle doesnt You have to go all the way to Newcastle.

Why are some people so miserable and just moan about anything........! A store or business opening up offering employment and not closing is positive. Does it matter what it is selling or not selling? People should be grateful that a big organisation has decided to invest money in our area, which will only encourage further investment.

This is great news for the town, empty units will be filled and more jobs will be created!! If the shop does well it encourage other retailers to come to the town too!
Plus h&m do have men's clothing in larger stores, and by the sounds of it this will be a large store!

That's just what Workington needs.. another "WOMENS" clothing shop... :/

@ Another Workington Resident from the report it reads only women and children are catered for in store. This sounds rather like the Carlisle store which also only caters for women and children.

At least it is better than a Drugs clinic.

Why the negative comments? Empty sales units reoccupied, 30+ jobs created for local people! We should be grateful that a major retailer has confidence in Workington.

Let's not get carried away. It is a shop. Yes, I am very glad about the jobs it will create and the business it may bring to the town but it is just a shop. Does so little happen up here that we are excited about this? As for suggesting Primark, never in a million years will Primark come up here, they will be in big cities where they can make the most money. To the person who said why not Whitehaven? Don't make me laugh, Workington has far more to offer the shopper

You don't shun close friends and keep them

Yes. Our bonds with Scotland are historic and unbreakable
