Uniqlo Philippines counts down to global flagship launch
Uniqlo Philippines has set the opening date for what will be the Japanese brand’s largest store in Southeast Asia.
The new store will open on October 5 in Glorietta 5 at Makati City, in Metro Manila.
Uniqlo says the store will have a sales area of 4000sqm and is designated a “global flagship”.
“The new store will offer local and international customers a huge shopping area and a world-class immersive shopping experience featuring large visual displays and state-of-the-art design concepts,” Uniqlo said in a statement. “As with other global flagship stores, it will also showcase the full lineup of LifeWear for men, women, kids and babies.”
Uniqlo has launched a nationwide campaign as a lead-up to the store’s launch, called ‘Our Future Is Here’. The fast-fashion retailer is inviting customers to nominate Filipinos who they believe are leaders in sports, film, music, culture, design, and other disciplines, influencing the nation’s future.
“The great success of Uniqlo Philippines is thanks to our customers here. The Our Future Is Here campaign is an exciting opportunity to deepen our connection with the city of Manila through our global flagship store, to engage communities and celebrate the innovators who will shape its future,” said John Jay, president for global creative at Uniqlo’s parent, Fast Retailing.
Meanwhile, Uniqlo has announced plans to launch in Denmark, opening its first store in Copenhagen in the second quarter of next year.
The 1400sqm store will be located on the Stroget, one of Europe’s longest pedestrian streets, in Louises Hus, a historical building dating back to the mid-1700s.
