UNIQLO today announces that it will open its first Global Flagship Store in Singapore, and in the Southeast Asia region, in Autumn of this year. The new store, which will be the largest UNIQLO store in Singapore and in the region, will be located in Orchard Central along Orchard Road, the fashion hub of Singapore for both local residents and international visitors.
“We are very honored, and excited, to open our first UNIQLO Global Flagship Store in Singapore. Having been a member of the local retail scene since 2009, we remain committed towards contributing to the local community and being an integral part of Singapore’s growth and future,” said Taku Morikawa, UNIQLO Southeast Asia CEO. “We will continue our effort to design and create innovative clothes that enrich the daily lives of people, as a reflection of our LifeWear philosophy,” he added.
The Singapore Global Flagship Store will provide an extensive range of the latest lines for women, men, kids and babies, in a sales area of approximately 2,700 square meters across three levels in Orchard Central, the first and tallest vertical mall in Singapore. Modelled on highly successful UNIQLO flagship stores around the world, customers will enjoy the best that UNIQLO has to offer, in a truly unique retail setting, from an extensive product range to the store’s interior and layout.
The opening of a Global Flagship Store in Singapore highlights its prominence in UNIQLO’s expansion plans worldwide and will add to global flagship stores in key locations today, including New York’s Fifth Avenue, London’s Oxford Street, and Ginza in Tokyo. Through its innovative, high-tech displays and extensive product lineup, the new Singapore Global Flagship Store will serve as a launch pad to display the brand’s LifeWear to a wider audience.
The latest UNIQLO Global Flagship Store will create more than 300 jobs in Singapore. The company also reiterates its commitment to offer employment opportunities for people with disabilities as its mission to make the world a better place.
