Uniqlo will open its first store in Australia, in Melbourne in Spring 2014 (according to Northern emishpere). The debut store will open in the Emporium Melbourne, a new retail complex in the heart of Melbournes' city centre.

The launch in Australia continues Uniqlo's expansion growth in the Asia Pacific region. It follows debuts in Singapore (2009), Malaysia (2010), Taiwan (2010), Thailand (2011), The Philippines (2012) and Indonesia (2013). The Japanese group views Australia as a key market in establishing its brand in the Asia, and Oceania region and its first step into markets in the Southern emisphere.

The new Store measures almost 2180sqm and has four floors - two basement floors and two above ground floors - and will host Uniqlo's apparel for men, women, kids and babies.
