Uniqlo plans to open two stores in Toronto in fall 2016, marking its first foray into the Canadian market.
The stores will be located in Yorkdale Shopping Centre, at 24,000 square feet, and Toronto Eaton Centre, at 28,000 square feet.
Canada represents the retailer’s 18th market overall.
Larry Meyer, chief executive officer of Uniqlo USA and Canada, said, “Entering the Canadian market is a milestone for the company and a signifant step in our growth strategy.”
Meyer noted that the next Canadian city it plans to enter is Vancouver.
