The next new market for the casualwear label will be Denmark, where a new store is expected to open Strøget, one of Europe’s longest pedestrian streets, in Copenhagen in the spring of next year.

The company has chosen a historical building dating back to the mid-1700’s, once occupied by clothier Louise Christine Rasmussen, for its first Danish store, which will occupy a space of approximately 1,400 square metres across three levels. Elements from the original classic style architecture will feature throughout the interior of the store and on the façade.

“We are pleased to be announcing our next phase of growth in Scandinavia with the launch of our first store in Denmark next year, on the renowned Strøget in Copenhagen. We look forward to introducing the Uniqlo brand and our LifeWear concept to Danish customers, who appreciate well designed, functional and high quality clothes,” said Taku Morikawa, chief executive officer of Uniqlo Europe.
