International clothing chain H&M is set to open a store in Wellington next month.

The two-level store will open on October 26 at Queensgate Shopping Centre in Lower Hutt. 

The store will sell clothing for men, women, kids and babies as well as homeware.

H&M Australia and New Zealand manager Hans Andersson said "We look forward to meeting our H&M customers in the country's capital and engaging them with our wide range of offerings."

It will be the third outlet in New Zealand, and it comes a year after the first New Zealand store opened at Sylvia Park in Auckland.

A second store opened at The Crossing in Christchurch last month.
