Globally, H&M had 3,970 stores as of February and plans to open 425 more by November. The company is the world’s second-biggest clothing retailer by sales after Zara’s parent Inditex of Spain. In 2017 H&M intends to open stores in four to five new markets, including Colombia, Iceland and Kazakhstan.
