New York -- Fast Retailing Co. will open 10 more Uniqlo stores in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, and California this fall, bringing the brand’s presence in the U.S. to 17 stores, plus the online shopping platform Uniqlo.com that opened in October of 2012.
The new stores will be in shopping centers and malls and will carry casual clothing for men, women, and kids.
There are currently seven U.S. stores, including three in New York City, two in New York State (Westchester's Ridge Hill, Palisades Center), one in Paramus, NJ (Westfield Garden State Plaza), and one in San Francisco’s Union Square.
"Uniqlo is ready to take our next step in our U.S. expansion by opening more smaller format and mall stores in the regions surrounding our current flagships stores in the Tri-State and Northern California regions," said Larry Meyer, COO of Uniqlo's USA business and Fast Retailing Group senior VP.
Fast Retailing Co. is a Japanese retail holding company that designs, manufactures and sells clothing under six main brands including Uniqlo.
