H&M landlords stated that they find the proposition quite aggressive". However, they state that H&M has a strong decision power.  The fashion group operates 304 stores across its 4,739-strong global store estate in the United Kindgom. 


H&M grew 5.2% in its fiscal year 2018, up to 19.7 billion euros, but its earnings dropped 21.8%, to 1.2 billion euros.
