Uniqlo, the Japanese apparel retailer, will launch in India with the opening of its first store in Delhi during Fall 2019, marking the brand’s entry into the South Asia region. India will become the latest in a string of new markets for Uniqlo worldwide, following earlier announcements to launch in Sweden and the Netherlands in Fall 2018.

Following the establishment of a wholly-owned subsidiary in Delhi this month, Uniqlo will soon begin recruiting local talent as it prepares to open its store in the world’s fastest-growing major economy. “The company will focus on expanding its presence in the capital region before considering other areas,” Uniqlo’s parent company Fast Retailing Co. Ltd. said in a media release.

As part of its preparations to enter the Indian market, Uniqlo will soon introduce its Uniqlo Manager Candidate (UMC) programme in the South Asian country.

“Our entry in India represents a significant step in our company’s global strategy, and we are very pleased and excited to be part of the country’s growing retail market,” said Tadashi Yanai, chairman, president and CEO of Fast Retailing Co., Ltd., the operator of the Uniqlo brand. “We look forward to introducing Uniqlo and our high quality, affordable LifeWear apparel in India, while at the same time contributing to the expansion of the Indian economy.”

LifeWear is the Uniqlo commitment to creating perfect clothing that meets the needs of everyone’s daily lifestyles. High quality, functional, affordable and constantly evolving, Uniqlo offers LifeWear in a variety of colours and styles for people of all ages. (RKS)
