Most of us have seen the stores of the Japanese brand UNIQLO while on our travels away from Scotland. Well, UNIQLO is officially coming to Scotland this Spring 2024, bringing a brand new massive store to the heart of Edinburgh. This can only mean they are bringing those super warm down coats, too!
Located on Princes Street, the first UNIQLO Scottish store is set to boast a sales floor of approximately 1,430 sq meters across two storeys, which is pretty much the main shopping street in the Scottish capital which also connects with the newly-built shopping mall, St James Quarter.
What is more, there are currently 17 UNIQLO stores in the UK The new Edinburgh shop will launch alongside a new store in London, One Oxford Street, in Spring 2024 and will follow the Covent Garden store that opened in April 2023, making the total number of the brand’s stores in the UK go up to 19.
One of the most recognised lines LifeWear known for innovation and quality will also be sold within the store for all genders, kids and babies.
“We are excited to take this next big step in the U.K.’s expansion plans with the Edinburgh store opening in Spring 2024. It’s an honour to be opening in not only a new city but a new country, Edinburgh is a city of great cultural and historical heritage, we have many existing Scottish customers who shop through our e-commerce site, and Edinburgh has such a strong footfall from both locals and tourists.
UNIQLO is proud to be expanding our presence in this important retail location, we look forward to bringing LifeWear to Scotland in 2024.” said Alessandro Dudech, COO of UNIQLO U.K.
