To date, there are currently 13 global flagship stores around the world, including in New York, London, Paris, and Shanghai. Soon, Uniqlo will be adding one more to the list as they’ve just announced that their first global flagship store in the Southeast Asia region is slated to open in the 2nd half of this year.


The new store will be located on Orchard Road in Singapore, the fashion hub of both Singaporean residents and international visitors. The Singapore global flagship store will provide an extensive range of the latest lines for women, men, kids and babies, in a sales area of approximately 2,700 square meters across 3 levels in the Orchard Central, the first and tallest vertical mall in Singapore.

Modelled on highly successful Uniqlo flagship stores around the world, customers will enjoy the best that Uniqlo has to offer, in a truly unique retailing setting – from the product range to the store’s interior and layout. Through its innovative, high-tech displays and extensive product lineup, the new Singapore global flagship store will serve as a launch pad to display the brand’s LifeWear to a wider audience.

The opening of a global flagship store in Singapore highlights its prominence in Uniqlo’s expansion plans worldwide and will add to global flagship stores in key locations today, including New York’s Fifth Avenue, London’s Oxford Street, and Ginza in Tokyo.  The latest Uniqlo global flagship store will create more than 300 jobs in Singapore.
