UNIQLO, the global clothing retailer, announced today that it will continue its expansion in the U.S. by opening six new stores in the greater Boston metro area, four of which will open this summer and fall. These new stores will mark the brand's first stores in Massachusetts, and its entry into one of three new U.S. markets this year.

The new UNIQLO Boston metro locations and opening dates are:

• Natick Mall in Natick, MA (August 29)

"We are pleased to introduce the UNIQLO experience to Boston. Proud of their city's importance in American history, and winning sports traditions, Bostonians have high expectations. We believe our everyday basics of exceptional value and functional apparel will delight them and contribute meaningfully to their lives," said Larry Meyer, CEO of UNIQLO USA and Fast Retailing Group Senior Vice President.

Boston area fans will get a sneak peek of UNIQLO when a pop-up shop opens at Faneuil Hall Marketplace early this summer. A permanent store will open at the marketplace in spring 2015.

UNIQLO plans to open more stores in 2014, including the other new markets of Philadelphia and Los Angeles, in addition to the existing markets of San Francisco, Connecticut, New Jersey and New York.
