UNIQLO today announces plans to enter the Belgian market with a store in Antwerp, to open in Autumn 2015. Antwerp is the first city of Flanders and the second city of Belgium after Brussels. A world renowned fashion capital with a vibrant cultural scene, Antwerp is also a popular shopping destination for international visitors.

"We are very pleased to be announcing today our decision to open a first UNIQLO store in Belgium, in the city of Antwerp, which is the center of the Belgian fashion industry and home to MoMu (Mode Museum), the renowned fashion museum," said Berndt Hauptkorn, CEO, UNIQLO Europe. He added, "UNIQLO stands for high quality, versatile and affordable clothes, for people of all ages, and we believe both residents and visitors to Antwerp will truly appreciate our offering."

In Europe, UNIQLO operates 23 locations across four markets (as of the end of October 2014) - the UK, France, Russia and Germany, where it opened its first store, in Berlin, April this year. 2014 has also seen the expansion of UNIQLO's operations in France, with the opening of UNIQLO Le Marais in April, a store in the fashionable Marais district of Paris, a UNIQLO store in Marseille in May, and another store scheduled to open in Strasbourg on November 14.
