H&M’s executives shared that they will place more emphasis on online shopping moving forward – which has seen a boost in sales during the lockdown period. “We can already see that the pandemic has caused changes in customer behaviour that will accelerate the digitalisation of our industry,” H&M Group CEO Helena Helmersson said during a conference call recently.

We have increased our customer base online and many of our customers — in-store customers — are now multichannel customers,” she added. It was also noted that even more male customers have embraced the method of online shopping.
