UNIQLO to Open Permanent Store at Santa Monica Place in 2015

Now Hiring for Open Positions in the Los Angeles Area

UNIQLO CO., LTD.

UNIQLO, the global clothing retailer, announced it will open a permanent store at Santa Monica Place in the spring of 2015 which will house the brand's full assortment of high-quality, functional apparel for people of all ages. The announcement comes following the success of the UNIQLO pop-up shop at Santa Monica Place, which opened in July 2014 and will remain open throughout the holiday season. The new approximately 10,000 square foot location will anchor the second level, taking advantage of the migration of shoppers heading to the top-level ArcLight Theatres set to open in fall 2015.

"Given the success of our pop-up store and the strong welcome from customers, this was the perfect next step," said Larry Meyer, CEO of UNIQLO USA. We're thrilled to build a permanent home in Santa Monica Place adjacent to Third Street Promenade to better serve our fans from all over the Greater Los Angeles area."

"Santa Monica Place continues to be a powerful draw for top retail brands and shoppers from around the corner and around the globe," said Art Coppola, Chairman & CEO, Macerich. "Located in an exceptional trade area - this iconic property continues to attract some of the most coveted retail names. We are very pleased to add UNIQLO to our mix, especially after such exciting brand visibility on the courts at the US Open."
