UNIQLO to Ramp up U.S. Expansion with 10 Stores this Fall
Japanese apparel retailer UNIQLO, a division of Fast Company, will open 10 more American stores this fall in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, and California. Each new location will be in a shopping center, and they will increase the brand’s presence in the United States to 17 sites. To staff the new stores, UNIQLO ambitiously plans to hire and train several hundred full-time and part-time employees at all levels.
“UNIQLO is ready to take our next step in our U.S. expansion by opening more smaller-format and mall stores in the regions surrounding our current flagship stores in the Tri-State and Northern California regions,” said Larry Meyer, COO of UNIQLO’s USA business and Fast Retailing Group senior VP. “Our goal is to continue to build brand awareness for new potential customers, and greater loyalty from our fans, with more convenient access to our high quality clothing and exceptional customer service.”
Currently, UNIQLO operates seven U.S. stores, including three in New York City, two in New York State, one in Paramus, NY, and one in San Francisco, CA.
