Here’s something to look forward to in the fall besides the start of the school year.

Alberta is about to get its very own Uniqlo and it’s coming to the West Edmonton Mall this September.

Yuichiro Kaneko, the CEO of Uniqlo Canada, expressed his excitement for its inaugural opening.

“Edmonton’s active lifestyle and diverse culture makes Uniqlo a natural fit for Edmontonians, and we look forward to welcoming them to our new store and bringing LifeWear to Alberta.”

Uniqlo is known for being a Japanese global apparel retailer with its “innovative, high-quality clothing that is universal in design and comfort.” according to the release.

This will be the 12th Uniqlo location in Canada with seven stores found in Toronto and four in the Metro Vancouver area.

The first store will open in West Edmonton Mall on September 27 and will be on level two, phase II near the Mayfield Toyota Ice Palace. It’ll be 15,000 sq. ft. and will offer men, women, kids, baby items, and apparel.

Get there early on opening day because the first 200 people in line will receive special edition tote bags. The first 500 customers who make a purchase on opening day will receive HEATTECH giveaways.
