to Japanese

April 11, 2012, Tokyo, Japan - UNIQLO today announces the highly anticipated next step in its expansion plan for the U.S. market: a large flagship store in San Francisco, California. The new UNIQLO store, to open in the fall of 2012, will be located at 111 Powell Street, fronting the world-famous cable car line of the prominent Union Square shopping district.

UNIQLO San Francisco will be the fourth U.S. location for the apparel retailer, following large flagship store openings in Manhattan in 2006 with UNIQLO Soho and in 2011 with UNIQLO 5th Avenue and UNIQLO 34th Street.

Commenting on today's announcement, Fast Retailing Chairman, President & CEO Tadashi Yanai said, "We are very excited to be opening our first UNIQLO store on the U.S. West Coast in San Francisco, a world leading center in innovative technology. Our plan to open a store on the West Coast is part of our longer-term commitment to expand our presence throughout the United States. We look forward to working closely with the people of San Francisco to help us create the best possible store, and to bringing our high quality, innovative and affordable clothing to the diverse San Francisco community and the wider Bay Area."

The new West Coast flagship store will be around 2,700 square meters in total, and its interior design will reflect a modern, innovative Japanese company.
