I went to Marina Mall yesterday to buy something quick and leave but ended up hanging around a little longer. As I was passing through the circular area where all the cafes are, I spotted a crowd gathering up in front of H&M. I knew the opening wasn't till next day but was curious what was up with the crowd. Turns out they had opened up the shutters for the people to see what kind of merchandise they are selling. I asked one of the promotors there why not wait till the opening. He said they wanted the people to have a before-hand idea of where they should go when the shop open today cos many want that Madonna bag and it is a form of advertising. Well both make sense, but imagine hundreds of shoppers stampeding through the doors racing to spend 20 K.D. for a bag!! Anyway, I got a look of the place and I thought it was very well designed, organized, spacious, and big. As for the clothing, they got some nice stuff going on but not my style. If you head down today, I would advise you to stand aside until the stampede is over then go in. I am gonna get me a nice Caramel Machiato at Starbucks, have my camera next to me, and enjoy the show:) This is gonna be fun :P
Note: There are only 150 bags.
Update: Yesterday's opening was for the VIP. Why wasn't I invited? :P
