ONE of Colchester’s most popular fashion stores is growing by 60 per cent.

The first floor of H&M, in Culver Square, has been opened to the public.

Work has begun on using the rest of the ground floor as shop space from next month.

The expansions will see the retailer, based in the former Woolworths unit since March 2010, grow to 27,000ft, creating up to 15 jobs in the process.
