Uniqlo to enter Canada

uniqloUniqlo will open two stores in Canada in the fall of 2016, marking the brand’s first entry into the country and its 18th market overall.

The stores will be located at Yorkdale Shopping Centre, one of the highest performing shopping centers in North America and Toronto Eaton Centre, a historic landmark and one of Canada’s best known shopping destinations.

These flagship level stores at 24,000sqft and 28,000sqft respectively, will offer the brand’s full range of men’s, women’s and children’s items.

Larry Meyer, CEO if Uniqlo USA and Canada, said entering the Canadian market is a milestone for the company and a significant step in its growth strategy.

“Our first two stores in the great City of Toronto will mark the launch of the Uniqlo brand in Canada, which we aim to build upon thereafter with a presence in the lovely city of Vancouver.”

Since opening its first store in Japan in 1984, Uniqlo has grown to become an international leader with more than 1500 stores worldwide.
