UNIQLO Now Planning Four Area Stores

The Chestnut Street location will be huge.

UNIQLOThe extremely trendy and fairly inexpensive clothing retailer UNIQLO is invading the region: first, a store opened in the King of Prussia Mall. Then stores were announced for Center City’s Chestnut Street and the Willow Grove Park Mall. Now, Shoppist reports that the Tokyo-based company is coming to South Jersey as well, to the Cherry Hill Mall:

A rep confirms that the store will open on September 26th, just a week before the October 3rd opening at 1608 Chestnut Street. It will be on the main level, sandwiched between a Bath & Body Works and an Abercrombie & Fitch. If you’re counting, this is four UNIQLO stores to open region in less than a year. World domination next? (Or maybe just Delaware.)


And last month, Shoppist got an exclusive preview of the Chestnut Street location, and it sounds very impressive. It’s four floors and 29,000 square feet, and when it’s completed, “over 60 LED monitors and tickers will display merchandise and style visuals.” Plus:

All that space also means that the store has more real estate for the company’s awesome MoMA collaboration and SPRZ New York collection, a line of art-inspired items, most of them tees splashed with frame-worthy art prints. (The Rittenhouse store is the only store other than New York that will have a dedicated area for this.)

UNIQLO Continues Tri-State Domination With Yet Another Store Opening
