According to The Asahi Shimbun, Japanese major clothing retailer Uniqlo opened its new flagship store called “Uniqlo Tokyo” in Tokyo’s fashionable Ginza district on June 19.
The Uniqlo store was originally located on the seventh floor of the mall Marronnier Gate Ginza 2, but has moved to occupy the first four floors of the building and gone through extensive renovations.
The sales floor area has markedly increased by about three times in size, now covering about 5,000 square meters.
The store’s new look is designed to reveal the other floors and show off the four-story ceiling. The design features exposed beams made of reinforced concrete.
The clothing store was previously only selling women’s clothing, but since the refit it now also sells clothing for men and children, as well as bedding.
“The store has cutting-edge sales floors,” said Tadashi Yanai, chairman and president of Fast Retailing Co., which operates Uniqlo, at a recent news conference.
“I would like the store to enjoy prosperity,” he said, adding he hopes it will serve as a symbol of “resurgence” from the novel coronavirus outbreak and “help revive Japan.”
