H&M To Launch E-Commerce, America Welcomes Them To The New Millennium

You might know H&M as the Swedish retailer where your girlfriend wastes a lot of your hard-earned money and as the mega chain that made Versace, Margiela and, soon, Isabel Marant available for less than some back alley candy. Well, they just announced that they're launching e-commerce in August, so, like, welcome to the year 2000, H&M. Will I be able to buy a Motorola flip phone or TiVo in your new webshop? I'm not sure what it is with these global brands like Zara, Uniqlo and H&M, all of which have just launched online shopping in the past couple of years. Whatever the reasons may be, we're simply thankful we no longer have to tag along when our better halves dive headfirst in a pile of silk blouses.
