Right before the official opening hour, a pre-opening count down party with live DJ performances and signature H&M staff dance was enthusiastically enjoyed by all queuers. Besides giving away the limited edition H&M Vietnam tote bag with H&M goodies to the first 1,000 customers in line, H&M also surprised and excited the crowd with 3 giant gift cards of VND 6 mil, 4 mil and 2 mil to the 3 luckiest shoppers.
