Fast Retailing Co. Ltd., the world's fourth largest apparel retailer, announces the opening of the UNIQLO MARCHÉ PRINTEMPS GINZA, its first ever multi-brand store offering customers a unique opportunity to experience five of its most popular labels under one roof. Located inside THE PRINTEMPS GINZA Department Store in Tokyo's Ginza district, one of the world's top fashion centers, the new UNIQLO MARCHÉ PRINTEMPS GINZA Store opens Friday, November 2.
The overall concept of the new UNIQLO MARCHÉ PRINTEMPS GINZA is to create a new style of 'wardrobe for women' by showcasing clothing lines from five Fast Retail brands: g.u., PLST (plus T), Comptoir des Cotonniers and Princesse tam.tam, alongside its signature UNIQLO brand. For Princesse tam.tam, the Paris-based stylish European brand of lingerie, home wear and swimwear, UNIQLO MARCHÉ PRINTEMPS GINZA will be its first outlet in Japan.
Fast Retailing believes that the PRINTEMPS GINZA's clientele of fashionable female professionals will benefit from the convenience of having five of its great brands on sale at a single shopping destination.
"I am delighted to have the opportunity to showcase a family of brands at the PRINTEMPS GINZA, a store I have long admired. I hope that having five of our brands under one roof at this landmark location will offer busy professional women an exciting and convenient one-stop shopping destination," said Tadashi Yanai, Chairman, President and CEO of Fast Retailing.
"THE PRINTEMPS GINZA warmly welcomes the Fast Retailing brand family to our department store. We are confident our customers will be thrilled by the new UNIQLO MARCHÉ PRINTEMPS GINZA concept and appreciate the great value these brands offer," said Hiroshi Sasaoka, President of THE PRINTEMPS GINZA Department Store.
UNIQLO MARCHÉ PRINTEMPS GINZA represents the first time Fast Retailing has partnered with THE PRINTEMPS GINZA. With approximately 2,600-square meters of retail space, the new UNIQLO MARCHÉ PRINTEMPS GINZA will occupy the 6th and 7th floors of the main building of the department store, just a few blocks away from the UNIQLO Ginza global flagship store. UNIQLO MARCHÉ PRINTEMPS GINZA will include five store-within-stores, each showcasing a selection of women's items from the five Fast Retailing brands.
