June 6th was the long awaited grand opening of the H&M store at the Hamilton Mall in Mays Landing and I must admit, the 3 hour wait in line was well worth it. Kudos for H&M for doing an amazing job keeping us hyped up till noon when the store was officially opened. They handed out free ice cream, free goody bags for the first 100 people in line (me and my group of friends included hehe), and there was even a DJ there which made it feel as though we were at some daytime club in the mall haha. The employees were phenomenal I must say, they would do whatever it took to keep us awake and excited, dancing, doing the waves, and all that sort while we were agonizingly waiting in line, eager for the store to open. At the end of the wait, me and my friends were just glad we all got a $50 gift card to go splurging on ourselves with.
