The highly anticipated H&M store in Collierville opened its doors Thursday afternoon.

Shoppers waited for hours as lines wrapped around buildings and through parking lots. Some even arrived extremely early for the grand opening.

"We have been here since 1:30 in the morning," said shopper Amber Wright.

But as employees danced in front of the store, shoppers said the wait was worthwhile.

"It's H&M. There isn't a question about it; the brand is iconic. It's here in Memphis there is no other place I was going to be," said Wright.

The 19 thousand sq foot store employs 30 people and has clothes for men, women and children.

"I feel so honored to be here. I'm excited about the prices and the people. I'm having an amazing time," said Breanna Jackson. "From the first time I ever walked in and bought my first dress, first pair of shoes, I fell in love with it."

Employees said a store will eventually open in Southaven, but they have no time frame for that just yet. As of now, they said it's time for Memphis to shop.
