Located at the ‘Yellow House’ commercial building, in Largo da Companhia de Jesus No. 2, the flagship store is also close to St. Paul Ruins, making the location one that is nestled in the heart of the city’s historical landmarks with access to different key districts.
Opening on 30th September, the new Macau store will occupy 1772 square metres and spans five storeys.
Inside, the flagship will stock Uniqlo’s latest apparel collections for men and women, and will feature the UTme! customise design t-shirt service – a first for Macau shoppers. In addition to this service, Uniqlo also plans to partner with local artists to launch UTme! designs, based on local elements.
More than retailing, the store will also house an exhibition area where community events will take place.
The latest Macau store opening marks Uniqlo’s second outlet in Macau, after opening its first store at The Venetian mall in Cotai.
More recently, Uniqlo opened two new domestic experiential stores: one in Harajuku on 5th June and its largest global flagship in Japan – Uniqlo Tokyo – on 19th June. Each store is designed specifically to enable customers to experience first-hand the brand’s
LifeWear clothing concept and products.
