COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Fashionistas in the Chattahoochee Valley no longer have to wait for H&M to arrive in Columbus. 

People were already lined up at seven this morning to make sure they were among the first to get into one of the biggest fashion retailers.

The new store will offer about 30 jobs, and Peachtree Mall's Marketing Director explained why this opening is such a big deal.

"Today we have H&M opening. It's a national Retail out of Sweden. It's a really big deal to get it at Peachtree mall, it's a very exciting time for us. This is one of the hottest trending retailers in the country right now," Angela Jacks said. 

Jacks says workers will also be giving out gift cards to the first 100 customers of varying dollar value.

The new H&M will replace the mall's Campus Spirit store next to Victoria's Secret.
