H&M Group explores tech-enabled shopping experiences in US stores


In building more relevant and meaningful relationships with our customers, the H&M group is now launching a new in-store shopping experience enabled by technology, in the United States.

The entire retail experience is rapidly changing and we see increasing customer expectations for broad choice and exceptional convenience. Our customers expect retail experiences that are smooth, creative and fun while also catering to their individual, unique style. That is why we continue to challenge ourselves and explore new ideas, to create true customer value and drive change.

H&M Group is now rolling out a pilot in COS stores, US, where tech-enabled in-store shopping solutions provide visitors with seamless payment options, personalised styling recommendations, faster checkout, and upgraded delivery/return options. Our goal is, and has always been, to build valuable connections and exciting pathways that deepen relationships with our customers. This is one example of H&M Group’s ambition to pilot new technologies that meet customers’ demands.

Among the tech solutions in the first pilot-store in Beverly Hills, California, are for example, fitting rooms equipped with smart mirrors that recognise products brought into the room (e.g. item, size, and colour) with the possibility to offer personalised product and styling recommendations. On the store floor, other types of smart mirrors can be used for virtual try-on and styling. We are also testing new checkout solutions and enhanced more sustainable delivery and return options.
