Uniqlo is to open its first store in Germany in spring next year with a flagship shop in Berlin.
The 2,700 square metre (29, 100 sq ft) store, located in Tauentzienstrasse, will sit over three levels and will offer menswear, womenswear and kidswear from the Japanese retailer.
Berndt Hauptkorn, Fast Retailing group officer and Uniqlo Europe chief executive, said: “The opening of our Berlin store marks a step-change for us. The German-speaking market will offer great opportunities for Uniqlo, as well as other major markets and cities we are considering across Europe including Barcelona and Milan.”
Uniqlo was founded in Japan in 1984 and now operates 1,200 stores across 14 countries, including France, Russia and the UK.
