Uniqlo to expand in the US

Japanese fast-fashion retailer Uniqlo is to expand its US presence with the opening of a fourth store outside of New York.

The retailer, which is owned by parent company Fast Retailing, has said it will open a fourth store in the US in San Francisco in the autumn.

Uniqlo already has three stores in the US, all based in New York, including its 89,000 sq ft global flagship on 5th Avenue which opened in November last year.

According to reports the retailer, which has 11 stores in the UK and one concession in Selfridges, wants to have 200 stores in the US by 2020 as it looks to shift its focus away from its home market of Japan.

In October, Nobuo Domae, the group executive vice-president of Uniqlo’s parent company told Drapers that the retailer is searching for a location of at least 43,500 sq ft for a new flagship store in London. As yet, no location has been secured.
