First Vancouver UNIQLO store opening this October

Sep 6 2017, 11:03 pm

The wait is finally over, Vancouver – UNIQLO has officially announced the opening date of its first BC store.

The 20,800 sq. ft. Metropolis at Metrotown store will open its doors on Friday October 6!

It will be the third Canadian location for the global Japanese retailer, popular for its casual apparel, which opened two locations in Toronto in late 2016. 

And, if the recent opening of Metrotown’s MUJI store is anything to go by, the lineups are going to be insane.

The new UNIQLO store will offer the brand’s full range of core items for men, women, kids, and babies.

“Vancouver is a key city in Canada and internationally. We are excited to introduce the Greater Vancouver Area to our LifeWear products that are constantly improved to offer more warmth, more lightness and more comfort – as well as our exceptional value and customer service,” said Yasuhiro Hayashi, Chief Operating Officer of UNIQLO Canada.

“It is a natural fit and progression for UNIQLO to open a store in this region. We believe that our simple yet innovative, high-quality clothing fits perfectly into the climate, culture and lifestyle of Vancouverites.”

Expect UNIQLO staples like ultra light down jackets, affordable cashmere, and their line of HEATTECH innerwear.
