Japanese cheap-chic fashion brand Uniqlo will open its first global flagship store in Singapore and in the South-east Asia region “this autumn”, according to a press release on Tuesday (Mar 29).
The new store, which will be the largest in Singapore and the region, will be located in Orchard Central, and will have a sales area of about 2,700 square metres across three levels in the mall, the company said.
The store will also create more than 300 jobs in Singapore, Uniqlo added.
“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 Mr Taku Morikawa, Uniqlo Southeast Asia CEO.
The Singapore global flagship store will add to existing such stores, including those in New York’s Fifth Avenue, London’s Oxford Street, and Ginza in Tokyo.
