This is a store opening you do not want to miss.

Alberta is about to get its very own Uniqlo at the West Edmonton Mall, with doors opening at 10 am on Friday, September 27.

Yuichiro Kaneko, the CEO of Uniqlo Canada, expressed his excitement for its inaugural opening in a release from earlier this summer.

“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.” states 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, as well as any customers who make a purchase over $75.

Customers who make any sort of purchase will also get a free HEATTECH crew neck long sleeve t-shirt (while quantities last, of course), and anyone who downloads the Uniqlo Canada App between now and October 4 will be entered to win a trip to Tokyo, Japan.

The trip includes roundtrip economy airfare for two, a four-night stay at a hotel, and $500 spending money.
