Uniqlo Canada expanding to British Columbia

Uniqlo Canada has announced plans to open its third store.

Its debut in British Columbia, the store will open late this year, 12 months after Uniqlo entered Canada with an outlet in Toronto.

Opening at Metropolis at Metrotown in Burnaby, British Columbia, the casual apparel retailer’s store will have 20,630 sqft (1917 sqm) of sales floor and offer its full range of core items.

“Canada continues to be an important focus for the company globally,” says Uniqlo Canada COO Yasuhiro Hayashi. “This country’s cultural and climatic diversity represents the perfect platform for Uniqlo and our philosophy of LifeWear.”

Product offerings at the new store will include the brand’s signature collections such as Airism, Cashmere, HeatTech and Ultra Light Down.

Since opening its first store in Japan in 1984, Uniqlo has expanded to more than 1800 outlets worldwide. It is one of seven brands under the umbrella of Japan’s Fast Retailing.
