Oct '11
UNIQLO will open two global flagship stores in Tokyo in 2012, with the new Ginza flagship set to open in the spring and the new Shinjuku flagship to follow in the fall. The two megastores will each feature sales floors spanning more than 4,000 square meters. The new Ginza and Shinjuku locations will be UNIQLO's second and third global flagship stores in Japan, following the 2010 debut of the Shinsaibashi global flagship in Osaka.

UNIQLO is pleased to announce the launch of two global flagship stores in Tokyo, Japan, following the launch of similar locations in New York, London, Paris, Shanghai, Osaka, Taipei and Seoul. The new stores will be UNIQLO's second and third global flagship stores in Japan, joining the brand's flagship location in Shisaibashi, Osaka.

The two megastores will each boast sales floors spanning 4,000 square meters. The Ginza global flagship store will have a total sales area of about 4,950 square meters, while the Shinjuku store will have about 4,125 square meters of floor space.

Customers are set for an easy, comfortable shopping experience in a spacious sales environment. The stores will match UNIQLO's greatest products with the best service and the highest possible standards, creatively presented with outstanding visual merchandising. The stores will serve as global showcases for the best that UNIQLO has to offer, as well as information hubs for sharing the latest UNIQLO news with the world.

UNIQLO intends to become a truly global brand, and it plans to accomplish this goal by opening global flagship stores in major cities throughout the world, so more people can enjoy the UNIQLO experience. The company also plans to open more global flagship stores in major Tokyo neighborhoods such as Shibuya, Harajuku, Ueno, Ikebukuro and other major commercial districts throughout Japan.
