BY Marianne Wilson

New York — Uniqlo, a division of Japan’s Fast Retailing Co., will open its second U.S. mall location, at Palisades Center in West Nyack, N.Y., on March 15.

The 24,000-sq.-ft. store will showcase Uniqlo’s complete offering of products for men and women, as well as its spring kids collection.

“We are thrilled to be opening at Palisades Center as we continue to execute our growth strategy in the U.S. We look forward to showing the patrons of Palisades Center our innovative products, exceptional customer service and brand philosophy," said Larry Meyer, COO, Uniqlo USA.

“Drawing on such a strong dedicated fan base from our Manhattan flagship stores, it was a natural progression to look further out into the Tri-State area for our next location. Palisades Center offers a good space within a great mall – factors we strongly consider when looking for a new store location for our family-oriented brand,” said Shin Odake, Uniqlo USA EVP, East Coast Operations.

This will be the company’s sixth U.S. retail location. There are currently three Uniqlo stores in New York City; one in Paramus, N.J.; and one in San Francisco. The retailer will open its seventh location next month, in April, at Westchester’s Ridge Hill in Yonkers, N.Y.

They said that a lot products sell at the mall will cost more than the original price. Yes, it might be true because the company has to pay for the rental of the mall also. - Carmack Moving and Storage

Opening branches to different places in your area is much better when you do it in a soft start. That is what they called as soft opening, and if it blooms time to go for the great effort on opening your business. - Scott Sohr
