Apr '15
Japanese apparel retailer is expanding its network of stores in the US, by opening new outlets in Seattle, Denver and also the DC Metro area for the first time.

In the DC Metro area, Uniqlo will open its first store at Tyson's Corner Center and enter Washington State for the first time, with an initial store at The Bellevue Collection in Seattle.

Alongside these new stores along the East and West coasts, the retailer will increase its footprint across the nation by opening a first store in Colorado, at The Denver Pavilions in Denver.

According to a Uniqlo press release, all three new stores will house the brand's full assortment of men's, women's and kids' lines.

"Having established a foothold in a number of key locations along the East and West coasts, we are pleased to expand our presence further in these new markets," said Larry Meyer, CEO of Uniqlo USA.

"Our LifeWear is versatile, functional and stylish, and I am confident it will continue to appeal to both an urban environment and an outdoor lifestyle,” he added.

The Tysons Corner Center attracts tens of millions of shoppers each year from around the world, and Uniqlo will display its latest collections in a total store space of approximately 10,000 square feet.

The Uniqlo store at The Bellevue Collection will be larger at around 13,000 square feet and the Denver Pavilions outlet will be the largest of the three at approximately 22,000 square feet.

The Bellevue Collection store will open this fall; The Denver Pavilions and Tysons Corner Center stores will open in Spring/Summer 2016.

Since opening its first store in New York City's Soho in 2006, Uniqlo has grown its presence to 39 stores across the US as well as launched its online shopping channel.

Separately, the company has announced plans to open at Faneuil Hall in Boston this summer, in Chicago on Michigan Avenue this fall and in Toronto, Canada, next year. (AR)
