From fall 2016 Uniqlo will open its first two stores in Canada in Toronto, in the Yorkdale Shopping Centre and Toronto Eaton Centre. These flagship stores will occupy 2,230 sq. meters and 2,600 sq. meters respectively, and will offer the brand’s full range of men’s, women’s and children’s items.

“Entering the Canadian market is a milestone for the company and a significant step in our growth strategy,” said Larry Meyer, CEO, Uniqlo USA and Canada. “Our first two stores in Toronto will mark the launch of the Uniqlo brand in Canada, which we aim to build upon thereafter with a presence in Vancouver.”

Since opening its first store in Japan in 1984, Uniqlo has grown to become an international leader with more than 1,500 stores worldwide.
