UNIQLO TO OPEN IN DISNEY SPRINGS NEXT MONTH
Japanese fast fashion retailer Uniqlo has announced that it will open its newest location in the U.S. on July 15 in Disney Springs, at Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Florida. The new store will occupy 25,000 square-feet across two sales floors and showcase the brand’s full assortment of products.
In addition to exclusive Uniqlo merchandise, the new store will incorporate the brand’s Japanese heritage by conveying Japanese tradition, culture and beauty through colorful visuals and displays. Japanese-inspired daily giveaways, as well as in-store events each week and month like Taiko drummers and a Japanese-style game show, will provide fun and entertaining ways for families to engage with Uniqlo and its Japanese origins.
“We are very excited to introduce our Uniqlo products, customer service and shopping experience to Orlando at Walt Disney World Resort,” said Hiroshi Taki, CEO of Uniqlo USA. “We are proud of our collaboration with Disney Consumer Products, and we look forward to offering our unique retail concept and products to vacationers and locals alike at Disney Springs. We hope to make every day at our store feel like opening day for our customers.”
Uniqlo at Disney Springs will be the company’s first store in the Southeast region. The brand currently has 43 stores in the U.S. including Los Angeles, Seattle, New York and Boston.
