UNIQLO, the Japanese global apparel retailer, has announced it is set to expand its footprint with the opening of its first Scottish store in Edinburgh in Spring 2024.
Located on Princes Street, the first UNIQLO store to open in Scotland will have a sales floor of approximately 1,430 sq metres.
Alessandro Dudech, COO of UNIQLO UK, said: “We are excited to take this next big step in the U.K.’s expansion plans with the Edinburgh store opening in Spring 2024.
“It’s an honour to be opening in not only a new city but a new country, Edinburgh is a city of great cultural and historical heritage, we have many existing Scottish customers who shop through our e-commerce site, and Edinburgh has such a strong footfall from both locals and tourists.
“UNIQLO is proud to be expanding our presence in this important retail location, we look forward to bringing LifeWear to Scotland in 2024.”
Recognised for LifeWear; innovative, high-quality clothing from UNIQLO that is universally appealing in design and comfort, the new store will feature LifeWear for all genders, kids and babies.
UNIQLO currently has 17 stores in the U.K. This new Edinburgh store will open alongside a new store in London, One Oxford Street, in Spring 2024 and will follow the Covent Garden store that opened on 27 April 2023, taking the total number of UNIQLO stores in the U.K. to 19 once opened.
