Japanese fashion brand Uniqlo announced in a press release on Tuesday (29 March) that it will open its first global flagship store in Singapore and the Southeast Asia region “this autumn.”

The new store, which spans 2,700 sq m of retail space across three levels, will be the largest Uniqlo store here and in the region.

“We are very honored, and excited, to open our first UNIQLO Global Flagship Store in Singapore. Having been a member of the local retail scene since 2009, we remain committed towards contributing to the local community and being an integral part of Singapore’s growth and future,” said UNIQLO Southeast Asia chief executive officer, Taku Morikawa.

The flagship store will be located in Orchard Central, which is currently undergoing its first major renovation since opening in 2009. Works at the 11-storey mall are expected to be completed by the third quarter of this year.

In a statement to the media in December 2015, Far East Organization’s Retail Business Group assistant director Eric Tong said the mall “will be welcoming a major international brand, which will be setting up their first Southeast Asia flagship store at Orchard Central.” He added that those affected—15 percent of the mall tenants—were “offered to relocate within Orchard Central or to alternative Far East Organization malls to ensure business continuity,” he said.
