Don’t give up on the mall just yet, because Uniqlo is officially coming to Canada!
Sure, it’s not coming until fall of 2016, but at least there’s a date set. (And really, next fall isn’t that far away!)
But wait, Uniqlo is opening two flagship stores in Toronto! One will open at the ever-growing Yorkdale Shopping Centre, while the other is set for the Toronto Eaton Centre.
According to an interview in the Toronto Star, Uniqlo hopes to move into other Canadian cities, like Vancouver.
Larry Meyer, CEO of Uniqlo USA and Canada, had this to say to the Star about the upcoming entry into the Canadian market: “I believe we are entering two great centres. That’s the way we’re starting, not with as big a business bet as Target made. We believe in the locations.”
