UNIQLO to Open Flagship Store in Chicago in Fall 2015

UNIQLO CO., LTD.

UNIQLO, the global clothing retailer, announced it will open a flagship store in the Chicago market in the fall of 2015. UNIQLO's Chicago store will be located at 830 North Michigan Avenue in the heart of the city's downtown area and part of The Magnificent Mile. It will be UNIQLO's second largest store in the U.S. after its Fifth Avenue Global Flagship in New York, and marks the brand's first entry into the Midwest.

"Chicago is a global city that's home to some of the finest cultural and sports institutions in the world, and we are thrilled to join the city's rich landscape," said Larry Meyer, CEO of UNIQLO USA. "We look forward to bringing our innovative, high-quality apparel, world class customer service and modern, bright store aesthetic to the people of Chicago."

To staff the new store and implement its global service standards, UNIQLO will begin recruiting at all levels.
