TOKYO— Building on the momentum of its 5th Avenue store unveiled last fall, Uniqlo is set to open its largest store to date in Tokyo's Ginza district on March 16. The store will represent an attempt to rebrand the company's current image in Japan, where many of its stores are smaller, more local outlets than its locations in other countries.
"We want to show the latest and the best Uniqlo, and we want to do that first from the world-renowned area of Ginza," said Tadashi Yanai, chairman, president and chief executive of Uniqlo and its corporate parent Fast Retailing. "After that, starting with [Tokyo's] Shinjuku this autumn, we plan to open more stores in top high street locations around the world."
