Yorkdale Shopping Centre has just announced the opening date of their new 30 store expansion. Although we are super excited for all the stores opening, we’ve been awaiting the arrival of Uniqlo for some time now.

According to the shopping centre, Uniqlo will open in October and will be situated within the new Yorkdale expansion wing.

While we have yet to hear an exact opening date, we expect the store to be open sometime between October 18th and October 25th, 2016.

If you’ve never heard of Uniqlo, the brand is a massive fast-fashion retailer out of Japan. THE brand caters to men, women and kids and will compete head to head with H&M, Forever 21 and Zara.  The brand caters to the trendy shopper who is looking for affordable clothing that is both current and stylish.

We expect Uniqlo to perform well in the Canadian market.
