UNIQLO announces the highly anticipated next step in its expansion plan for the U.S. market: a large flagship store in San Francisco, California. This new location, to open in the fall of 2012, will be located just blocks away from the prominent San Francisco shopping area of Union Square at 111 Powell Street. This store marks the brands' first location outside of New York and will act as the epicenter for expansion along the West Coast.

UNIQLO San Francisco will be the fourth U.S. location following large flagship openings in Manhattan beginning with UNIQLO Soho in 2006 followed by UNIQLO 5th Avenue and UNIQLO 34th Street both in the Fall of 2011.

Fast Retailing Chairman, President & CEO Tadashi Yanai said, “We are very excited to be opening our first UNIQLO store on the U.S. West Coast in San Francisco, a world leading center in innovative technology. Our plan to open a store on the West Coast is part of our longer-term commitment to expand our presence throughout the United States. We look forward to working closely with the people of San Francisco to help us create the best possible store, and to bringing our high quality, innovative and affordable clothing to the diverse San Francisco community and the wider Bay Area.”

The new West Coast flagship will be 29,000 square feet in total and its interior design will reflect a modern, innovative Japanese company.
