UNIQLO, the Japanese global apparel retailer, today announces plans to launch in the Danish market with the opening of a first UNIQLO store in Copenhagen in spring 2019. Located on the Strøget, one of Europe's longest pedestrian streets, in Louises Hus, a historical building dating back to the mid-1700's and situated in the heart of the city, the new store will measure approximately 1,400 square meters and will offer LifeWear for men, women, and kids across three levels.

"We are pleased to be announcing our next phase of growth in Scandinavia with the launch of our first store in Denmark next year, on the renown Strøget in Copenhagen. We look forward to introducing the UNIQLO brand and our LifeWear concept to Danish customers, who appreciate well designed, functional and high quality clothes," said Taku Morikawa, Chief Executive Officer of UNIQLO Europe.
