UNIQLO, the Japanese apparel retailer, has expanded into Montreal in a big way.
The new location inside the Eaton Centre is the first UNIQLO in Quebec and the largest chain in all of Canada.
The doors to the newly renovated 32,000-sq-ft opened to the public on Friday and the company has shared pictures of its grand opening with Daily Hive.

The new UNIQLO offers the brand’s full range of men’s, women’s, kids, and baby items.
“We are excited to welcome Montrealers to our new store, to not only enjoy our high quality and functional LifeWear apparel, but to also experience community collaborated areas that are exclusive to this UNIQLO store and not in any of our other stores in Canada,” said Yuichiro Kaneko, CEO of UNIQLO Canada. “With a continuous demand for UNIQLO from our customers, we are delighted to make LifeWear more accessible to Canadians as we continue adapting to new lifestyles.”
In an October 14 press release shared with Daily Hive, UNIQLO reps said the new store follows all enhanced protocols that align with “local guidelines of public health officials,” to continue prioritizing the health and safety of shoppers and staff.”
The Eaton Centre’s UNIQLO becomes the 14th in the country, joining eight in the Greater Toronto Area, four across British Columbia, and one in the West Edmonton Mall.
Best known for its quality basics and relatively affordable prices, the retailer has over 1,800 locations around the world and is the largest clothing retailer in Asia.
