UNIQLO Opens its Biggest Store in the Philippines at Manila’s SM Megamall

September 26, 2013, Manila, Philippines – UNIQLO continues to expand in the Philippines, and is set to open its biggest store in the country at SM Megamall in mid-November 2013. The store will occupy three floors with a total sales floor of 2,480 square meters, at SM Megamall’s Building D - the complex’s newest structure. The Japanese global fashion giant aims to hire several hundred sales associates to staff the new SM Megamall store and cater to its rapidly growing fan base in the Philippines.

The UNIQLO store at SM Megamall, situated at the heart of the Ortigas business district, is the brand’s seventh location in the country. Just over a year after the company opened its first store at SM Mall of Asia in Pasay City in June 2012, UNIQLO has successfully launched branches at SM North EDSA The Block in Quezon City, SM Aura Premier in Taguig City, SM Fairview in Quezon City, Glorietta 5 in Makati City, and SM City Pampanga (UNIQLO’s first venture in that province). With the opening of its SM Megamall store, UNIQLO aims to offer more customers in the Philippines top-quality, innovative and functional apparel, suited to the demands of dynamic lifestyles.

“The SM Megamall branch is the largest UNIQLO store yet in the Philippines, providing stylish Filipinos three times the fashion choices and three times the shopping experience,” said Katsumi Kubota, Fast Retailing Philippines, Inc. Chief Operating Officer. “Our brand is built on the seamless fusion of fashion and function - we provide great-looking clothes of high quality, made with comfortable materials,” he added.

An innovator in the global retail industry, UNIQLO offers a wide array of highly functional, quality apparel, at affordable prices. LifeWear, its latest global brand concept, describes UNIQLO apparel as clothes for a better life for everyone, every day.

The UNIQLO store at SM Megamall will be open from 10:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m.
