Uniqlo will open its first Queensland stores in the Brisbane CBD and at Indooroopilly Shopping Centre.

The first Australian Uniqlo store opened in April 2014 at Melbourne’s Emporium, and there are now six, across NSW and Victoria, with three more, including the two QLD stores, to open before the end of the year.

Uniqlo Brisbane, located in Queen St Mall will span 2,054sqm, while the Indooroopilly store will occupy floor space at the redeveloped shopping centre. The stores will offer the full Uniqlo line up including apparel and the AIRism range.

Shoichi Miyasaka, CEO of Uniqlo Australia said that since opening the first store in Melbourne last year, Uniqlo has gained a huge following across the country.

“We’re incredibly excited to be opening two Queensland stores this summer, and making the brand more accessible to Australian consumers. Queensland was the next logical step for us in Australia, with our wide range of every-day products and innovative fabric technology suitable for the versatile lifestyles of those in the sunshine state,” said Mr Miyasaka.

Brisbane Lord Mayor, Graham Quirk, said the addition of Uniqlo to the Brisbane market is an exciting time for the city’s retail sector.

“We’re excited to welcome Uniqlo at two new locations, including the ever expanding Indooroopilly Shopping Centre and the newly refurbished 170 Queen St in Brisbane’s CBD – where final touches are being put on the former Broadway Mall site,” Mr Quirk said.

“The addition of Uniqlo’s prestigious brand, along with the upgrades taking place at Edward St and Albert St, should continue to build consumer and retailer confidence in the industry – and demonstrate the city’s retail sector is an established, prosperous precinct.”

Australia is Uniqlo’s 16th market globally.
