Uniqlo announces Pacific Werribee Shopping Centre as next store location

uniqloFast-fashion retailer, Uniqlo, is set to open its 12th Australian store in Victoria’s south-west during winter.

Uniqlo’s new store at Pacific Werribee Shopping Centre marks the retailer’s first store in Victoria’s south-west, covering a sales area of 995sqm, and is expected to create over 60 jobs for residents in the local community.

The store opens as part of a $400 million redevelopment of the Pacific Werribee Shopping Centre that commenced in March 2014, bringing a taste of international fashion to both Werribee residents and those in the surrounding areas.

“We’re excited to open our doors to customers from the western region to experience the Uniqlo brand,” said Uniqlo Australia CEO, Shoichi Miyasaka. “We’ve had an extremely positive response from shoppers since opening our first store in Melbourne in 2014, and have since been focused on expanding our operations across the Victorian market.

“The new store at Pacific Werribee Shopping Centre will continue to help make our stylish and functional clothing more accessible to all Australians,” said Miyasaka.

The store will offer the full line-up of Uniqlo apparel for men, women, kids and babies.

“We’re extremely proud to be welcoming Uniqlo to Pacific Werribee later this year,” said Pacific Shopping Centres’ CEO, Graham Terry. “Uniqlo’s arrival will form part of our final stage of a $400m redevelopment and we anticipate it will make an impactful difference to the lives of our local shoppers.

“It is access to big global brands such as Uniqlo which will help to transform Melbourne’s West, and we can now confidently offer our community a comparable shopping experience to that of metropolitan Melbourne,” said Terry.
