Japanese clothing giant Uniqlo said on Tuesday that its first global flagship store in Southeast Asia will open in Singapore in the autumn. The new store, which will be the largest Uniqlo store in Singapore and in the region, will be located in the Orchard Central mall along Orchard Road, Singapore’s prime shopping strip.
“We are very honoured, and excited, to open our first Uniqlo global flagship store in Singapore. Having been a member of the local retail scene since 2009, we remain committed toward contributing to the local community and being an integral part of Singapore’s growth and future,” said Taku Morikawa, Uniqlo Southeast Asia CEO. “We will continue our effort to design and create innovative clothes that enrich the daily lives of people, as a reflection of our LifeWear philosophy,” he added.
The Singapore global flagship store will provide an extensive range of the latest lines for women, men, kids and babies, in a sales area of approximately 2,700 square meters across three levels in the Orchard Central, the first and tallest vertical mall in Singapore.
The opening of the store in Singapore is a new addition to Uniqlo’s global flagship stores in key locations, including New York’s Fifth Avenue, London’s Oxford Street, and Ginza in Tokyo. It will create more than 300 jobs in Singapore.
