Uniqlo to open 24th store in Australia in September

Japanese clothing retailer Uniqlo will open a new store in the country at Bondi Junction this September, taking its store count in Australia to 24.

The new store at Westfield Bondi Junction, which will span 1323sqm, will be the retailer’s ninth store in New South Wales.

Uniqlo said this store will feature the biggest LED screen installation ever seen in the retailer’s Australian stores and will offer a full line-up of the brand’s LifeWear apparel for men, women, kids and babies.

Kensuke Suwa, company chief operating officer, said since they’ve opened their first store in Australia in 2014, they have been able to consistently grow their retail footprint by leveraging their keen understanding of the local consumer and ensuring their products align with their needs.

“We hope to keep the momentum going and look forward to making the brand even more accessible to Australians,” Suwa said.

“We are excited by this milestone of bringing LifeWear from Tokyo to a truly iconic location in Australia and are looking forward to becoming a positive part of the Bondi community”.

This Uniqlo store is its eighth store with the Westfield Group, following Hurstville, Hornsby, Chatswood, Parramatta, Miranda, Chermside and Carousel.
