Mere hours after in-the-know Advocate editor Keri Mitchell speculated earlier today about H&M setting up shop in Dallas, we received this announcement from the fine folks there, who obviously didn’t return Mitchell’s calls because they were busy composing this press release:

H&M, Hennes & Mauritz, the design-driven clothing retailer known for high fashion style and quality basics at affordable prices, is proud to announce the opening of a new store location at NorthPark Center, the premiere shopping center in Dallas, in the second half of 2011. This will be the first H&M store to arrive in the Texas market!

Woo hoo!
