US: “World’s largest” Uniqlo store set for New York
The US subsidiary of the Japanese retail company said it had signed a lease contract for the store, with a total size of 8,300sq m, at 666 Fifth Avenue.
According to reports, the store will be the largest Uniqlo outlet in the world, even allowing for some of the space to be given over to offices and storage facilities.
The store, the second Uniqlo outlet in New York, will probably open during 2011, although arrangements are still being finalised.
It continues the aggressive international expansion of the low-cost Uniqlo retail concept, which has seen the opening of large stores in a number of overseas capitals, including London, Paris and Moscow.
