Vietnam’s first-ever store of famous Japanese apparel retailer Uniqlo is scheduled to open in downtown Ho Chi Minh City by the end of the year.
The store, named Uniqlo Dong Khoi, will be located at the Parkson Saigon Tourist Plaza on the corner of Le Thanh Ton and Dong Khoi Streets in District 1, the Vietnam News Agency reported.
Considered one of Uniqlo's largest stores in Southeast Asia, Uniqlo Dong Khoi will consist of three floors and cover a total area of more than 3,000 square meters.
The venue will provide the full global lineup of Uniqlo's LifeWear, which features high-quality, functional, affordable, and innovative clothing designs for men, women, and children of all ages.
It will also include a kids’ zone designed to stimulate children's creativity and ensure a comfortable family shopping experience.
The brand will collaborate with local artists and innovators to introduce special products that reflect the vibrant culture of Ho Chi Minh City and Vietnam in general.
Uniqlo, a subsidiary of Japan’s Fast Retailing Company, has opened more than 2,200 stores in 24 markets across the world.
Vietnam is the sixth country in Southeast Asia that the brand has set up shop, following Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, the Philippines, and Indonesia.
The retailer established its business in Vietnam in August 2018, with a charter capital of US$8.8 million.
