Uniqlo Philippines set to open soon in Manila

Clothing retailer Uniqlo is set to arrive here in the Philippines.

Filipino fans of the said clothing brand no longer need to buy it abroad when Uniqlo opens its first flagship store at SM Mall of Asia in 2012. Fast Retailing Corp., the firm which owns Uniqlo has partnered with SM Retail to form Market Watch Investment Corporation. The joint venture will be the instrument for Uniqlo’s entry in the country. Uniqlo has 824 stores in Japan and 150 stores overseas.
