    I hear they originated from NYC and they have like specific marketing method to keep their prices amazingly low... There's one in Boston.

    I saw some memorable ads on newspapers but I don't specifically recall one on TV...

    then again, I don't watch TV.. i think advertising (lack there of) is it.

    Cheap? Yes.

    Good quality? Sure, if your idea of "quality seafood" is Red Lobster.

    H&M = "disposable club clothes"

    It's cool, I shop there too. :) And Forever 21 on occasion.

    Peace,
    Dezign

    no such thing as quality clothes anymore. haven't been as long as mechanical looms have been making cloth. its just not as good as the homespun stuff, for some reason.

    As Dezign mentioned, H&M is anything BUT good quality. The reason why it's so cheap is because it's supposed to be disposable clothing. I've heard that they actually have 7 clothes seasons (as opposed to the normal winter, spring, fall, summer seasons).

    H&M does have a commercial. When it had ( still has) a collaboration with David Beckham. They have more commercials with BIG celebrities.
