Uniqlo confirms Australian expansion in Sydney

Monday, 12 May 2014
After the success of its first Australian store in Melbourne, which opened last month to strong response from customers, Japanese fashion company Uniqlo has announced plans to open a second Australian store in Sydney this Spring/Summer.

At almost 1,500 square meters, the store will take up the entire first floor of Pitt Street Mall, one of Sydney's most popular shopping and fashion destinations. Strengthening Uniqlo’s growing presence in Australia, the new store will focus on a unique shopping experience and world-class customer service, offering clothes for men, women, children and babies, including the new Uniqlo Spring/ Summer '14 collection and the brand's AIRism range.

"Australians have really embraced Uniqlo and its 'LifeWear' philosophy, both in Melbourne and through the online store. Opening in Sydney was always the next logical expansion across the Australian market. Our focus on and commitment to providing exemplary customer service has held us in good stead - and we are looking forward to offering Sydneysiders the full Uniqlo experience in store," commented Uniqlo Australia CEO Shoichi Miyasaka.

Asia Pacific remains a key region for Uniglo and the Australian expansion is following store debuts in Singapore (2009), Malaysia (2010), Taiwan (2010), Thailand (2011), the Philippines (2012), Indonesia (2013) and Melbourne (April 2014).
