Uniqlo is going to ramp up their launches! 200-300 new stores a year? In case you don’t know, Uniqlo is a household clothing brand in Japan, much like Old Navy. It’s clothing is low in price but also has the designs people seem to like. It’s utilitarian but at the same time, made fashionable. They also produce graphic t shirts which at $15 are inexpensive and well made. There is a flagship store in NYC and two more scheduled to open in October. They plan their expansion to hit mostly in China and Korea, yet this article does make mention of major cities in the US in order to become the largest clothing retailer in the world.
