NEW YORK — Six years after opening its first U.S. store in SoHo, Uniqlo next week will finally launch an American e-commerce site.
The Japanese retailer operates only five stores in the U.S., four in the New York-metro area and one in San Francisco. There’s great demand for Uniqlo products across the country, said Shin Odake, ceo of Uniqlo U.S., adding that the e-commerce site will allow Uniqlo to see where potential customers reside so it can consider opening stores there.
Hermès is launching a Laundromat pop-up shop in NYC - dubbed Hermèsmatic - where customers can bring their old scarves to be dip-dyed by an expert. Get all the details on WWD.com. #wwdnews (📷: @donstahl)
