UNIQLO today announces that it will open a global flagship store in the Philippines this coming Fall/Winter season. The new store, which will be the largest UNIQLO store in the country and in the Southeast Asia region, will be located in Glorietta 5, Ayala Avenue, in Makati’s central business and commercial district.
Situated at prime locations in cities of global prominence, UNIQLO Global Flagship Stores represent the best and latest of the brand, its LifeWear clothing and its famed customer service, all set in cutting-edge store design on a grand scale. UNIQLO has chosen Manila as the location of its newest flagship store to strengthen the foundation of its business in the Philippines and in Southeast Asia – a key global growth engine for the brand. The store will mark the 15th Global Flagship Store for UNIQLO in 11 markets around the world.
“We are honored and excited to open our first UNIQLO Global Flagship Store in the Philippines. Having been a member of the local retail scene since 2012, we remain committed to contributing to the local community and to being an integral part of Manila’s growth and future,” said Satoshi Hatase, Chief Executive Officer, UNIQLO Southeast Asia and Oceania.
Set over a sales floor area of 4,100 square meters, UNIQLO MANILA will offer local and international customers a huge shopping area and a world-class immersive shopping experience featuring large visual displays and state-of-the-art design concepts. As with other Global Flagship Stores, the store will also showcase the full lineup of LifeWear for men, women, kids and babies.
“This exciting new retail environment and experience will help put our Manila business in the global spotlight. We sense growing enthusiasm in the community here and hope to share the very best of the Filipino lifestyle, culture and optimism with the world through our flagship store,” Hatase added.
The opening of a Global Flagship Store in Manila highlights the importance of the Philippines in UNIQLO’s growth plans worldwide. It will add to Global Flagship Stores in key locations today, including New York’s Fifth Avenue, London’s Oxford Street, Paris’ Opera District, Ginza in Tokyo, and Orchard Road in Singapore.
