H&M at the Tanger Outlets in Southaven opened its doors on Thursday.

To celebrate the Southaven location's grand opening, the first 100 shoppers in line received "access to fashion" passes valued at up to $300.

"I've been here since 4:30 [a.m.]," shopper Natalie Colins said.

Colins and her son were one of the first people in line for the Grand Opening that was held Thursday.

Bundled in blankets, the cold temperatures (in the 40s) didn't keep them away.

"It's pretty chilly, but we took a chance anyway," Colins said.

To kick off their global recycling program at their new store, customers who brought garments to be recycled before the store opened also had the chance to win H&M gift cards valued between $50 and $250, in addition to the 30 percent off voucher. If you missed the rush this morning, you can still catch some of the specials. Customers who bring one bag of clothing from any brand through April 24 will receive a voucher for 30 percent off their next purchase.

"We didn't know what to expect, and we came out here at like six in the morning," shopper Cody DeSanto said.

DeSanto said he has shopped at the H&M location in Collierville, but he's happy to see a new location open closer to home at the Tanger Outlets. 

"I think it's good for Southaven and DeSoto County in general," DeSanto said.

H&M offers clothing and accessories for the entire family, from ladies to men to newborns.

The retailer created approximately 30 jobs, hiring almost all locally.

"The prices are reasonable; I can't complain," Colins said.
