UNIQLO, the Japanese apparel retailer, is expanding into Montreal and will open its doors to the public next week.
The Eaton Centre location will be the first in Quebec and the largest UNIQLO chain in the country.
In a news release shared with Daily Hive, UNIQLO says it will open its doors at its newly renovated 32,000-sq-ft spot on Friday, October 23 at 10 am.
The Montreal location will offer the brand’s full range of men’s, women’s, kids, and baby items.
The store will also have enhanced protocols that align with “local guidelines of public health officials,” to continue prioritizing the health and safety of shoppers and staff, states the news release.

“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.”
The Eaton Centre’s UNIQLO will become 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.
After offering “opening day activities,” the chain’s operating hours will be 11 am to 7 pm, Monday to Saturday.
