On June 24th, local time, the fast-selling fashion brand H&M closed its flagship store in central Shanghai.
Earlier this month, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP)’s great quarantine of Shanghai ended, commercial activities were resumed one after another, and the H&M flagship store was also opened for business. But at present, H&M’s three-story building in the city center has been sealed and the logo has been removed.
It is reported that in 2007, H&M entered Communist China as the world’s second largest fast fashion retailer and expanded rapidly. In 2021, H&M released an open letter expressing concerns about forced labor in Xinjiang and refusing to purchase Xinjiang cotton as a raw material. Subsequently, H&M was attacked by the CCP’s “little pinks” (brainwashed chauvinistic young patriots) network, and then the H&M stores of major e-commerce platforms such as Tmall and JD.com were removed from the shelves, and some Chinese endorsement stars also terminated their cooperation with H&M.
Some of the companies that announced their withdrawal from Communist China after the Shanghai quarantine including Airbnb, Amazon Kindle, Nike Running NRC, and others.
