Uniqlo to debut in Canada
Uniqlo owner Fast Retailing has announced that the clothing brand is to expand into Canada by opening two stores in Toronto in the autumn of 2016.
The flagship stores in the Yorkdale shopping centre and the Toronto Eaton Centre will measure 24,000 and 28,000 square feet respectively and will stock the brand's full range of clothing for men, women and children.
Larry Meyer, chief executive of Uniqlo USA and Canada, said: "Entering the Canadian market is a milestone for the company and a significant step in our growth strategy. Our first two stores in the great city of Toronto will mark the launch of the Uniqlo brand in Canada, which we aim to build upon thereafter with a presence in the lovely city of Vancouver."
Having opened its first store in Japan in 1984, Uniqlo now has more than 1,500 stores worldwide.
