“We currently don’t see that the virus leads to any larger delays with regards to supply,” an H&M spokeswoman said.
H&M does not make clothes itself but buys from a broad network of suppliers https://sustainability.hm.com/en/sustainability/downloads-resources/reso… which gives it flexibility to purchase more from outside China. However, many Asian garment factories source supplies, such as fabric and yarn, from China.
H&M has been gradually reopening its stores in China after closing around a third of them this month due to the outbreak. It said on Thursday that only 135 of 518 now remained closed in its fifth biggest market.
