Shoppers flock to get a glimpse of the new UNIQLO store at ION Orchard

As of 1pm, more than 7,000 die-hard UNIQLO fans were among the first to enter UNIQLO’s latest ION Orchard store which opened its doors today at 10am. The duplex store is UNIQLO’s first central store, located at the heart of Singapore Shopping District, Orchard Road.

To ensure that each shopper has a pleasant shopping experience, crowd control measures were set in place which proved successful in easing the flow of traffic in the store. Friendly UNIQLO staff were on-hand to provide shoppers with information and suggestions about their latest range from Fall/Winter 09 which includes the Neo Leather Collection, which premieres 2 weeks ahead of Japan.

The store’s best-sellers for the opening day were the Gundam and Japan Game UT T-shirt range and Belted Half Pants for male shoppers, while female shoppers bought up the new Neo Leather jackets, Extra-Fine Scoopneck Cotton T-shirts and Tapered Skinny Jeans. From now until the end of August, shoppers who purchase any of the Neo Leather range of apparel or spend more than $100 on a single receipt will receive a collectible UNIQLO Tote Bag.

”We are very excited to finally have a store in the heart of Singapore which we hope would be easier for more people to visit. With this prime location and what we have to offer, we aim to enhance our recognition and become a brand that appeals to all in Singapore,” said Mr Satoshi Onoguchi, Co-Managing Director for UNIQLO Singapore Pte.Ltd.

With an exciting new location and the release of UNIQLO’s Fall/Winter 09 collection in-stores now, UNIQLO is looking forward to seeing more Singaporeans visiting their stores in the cominig months. Look out for UNIQLO’s 14-day Opening Celebration Offer to take advantage of the great buys.
