UNIQLO opens 2nd store at SM City North EDSA

November 16, 2012, Quezon City, Philippines–UNIQLO, Japan’s leading global fashion brand, opens its second store today at the SM City North EDSA The Block.

The opening of its 2nd store serves as a fitting follow-up to the very successful opening of UNIQLO’s first store in the Philippines in June this year at the SM Mall of Asia in Pasay City.

The choice of SM City North EDSA in Quezon City was made to serve primarily Quezon City residents and other key areas in this part of northern Metro Manila. Quezon City is an acknowledged business, entertainment and lifestyle hub, and features a large concentration of residential areas that makes it an ideal location for UNIQLO’s new store. SM City North EDSA, on the other hand, is a top-of-mind choice for shopping and leisure activities in northern Metro Manila.

With the opening of its 2nd store in the country, UNIQLO is right on track in its target of opening more stores in the Philippines that will bring UNIQLO’s excellent products to more people in other areas.

The Philippines is the 12th branch outside of Japan where UNIQLO has presence, after opening stores in the US, UK, France, Russia, China, South Korea, Hong Kong and Taiwan. UNIQLO also operates stores in other countries in Southeast Asia such as Thailand, Malaysia, and Singapore.

UNIQLO is seen as an innovator in the global apparel industry because of its various product lines that are highly functional and of outstanding quality at an affordable price. UNIQLO promotes its “MADE FOR ALL” philosophy, whose underlying objective is to provide casual clothing that is made for all people regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, or any other ways that define an individual.

The UNIQLO store at the 2nd floor of the SM City North EDSA The Block is open from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. on weekends and 10:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. on weekdays.
