Hennes & Mauritz AB, the Swedish multinational clothing-retail company, known for its fast-fashion clothing for men, women, teenagers, and children, plans to cut 250 of its stores globally.
H&M operates in 74 countries with over 5,000 stores under the various company brands, with 126,000 full-time equivalent positions.
The planned closures will come next year after the firm said the COVID-19 pandemic had moved more shoppers online.
Although it said sales had continued to recover in September, they were still five percent lower than the same month in 2019.
