November 12 – I just got home from an exciting announcement happened awhile ago. UNIQLO announces that it will launch nine new stores in the Philippines by the Summer of 2014.This was announced by Uniqlo Chief Operating Officer, Katsumi Kubota including an official announcement that UNIQLO opens its seventh and largest store in the Philippines at SM Megamall.
Also he mentioned that before the end of 2013, UNIQLO will be launched at Robinsons Place Manila, SM Clark, SM BF Paranaque, and SM Dasmarinas.
Following this, by August 2014, UNIQLO will open new stores at SM South Mall, Eastwood City, Gateway Mall, and SM Santa Rosa. The company envisions several additional locations to launch within the year, and given this expansion, is set to hire hundreds of store associates. ”We are confident that UNIQLO is set for continued rapid growth in the Philippines, and our expansion is rooted in our sincere desire to bring the joy of wearing truly great clothes to Filipinos.” Says Mr. Kubota.
THE SM MEGAMALL Branch.
So here is the catch! I was able to tour around the 3-floor stores of UNIQLO at SM Megamall B. It is in front of Chris Sports and indeed yes, this is the largest!
Happy to see friends from Polyeast Records Ethel Capachero, Tricia Pablo and good friend, Champ Lui Pio!
I can actually say that Uniqlo is brand where you can choose variety of happy colors, sizes with free alteration. Imagine shopping and have someone available for you to perfectly fit to your choice of apparels. That is UNIQLO style.
Too many items to choose from!
And on their second floor..
and yes, they have eyewear too!
Bumped with Tom Doromal from PBB Teens!
Also found happy Marco Lobregat at the launch! He advised me to ‘always fit’. WILL DO!
UNIQLO launched in the Philippines in 2012, with its first store at SM Mall of Asia in Pasay City. Following on this, UNIQLO launched five stores, at SM North EDSA, The Block, SM Aura, SM Pampanga, SM Fairview, and Glorietta 5 in Makati Central Business District.
