A new store opening in the city is on the horizon for the end of this year with the announced arrival of Uniqlo, a Japanese ready-to-wear brand founded in 1974. It will occupy the building left vacant by the departure of Zara in June 2021, at number 22 Grand Rue.
Clothing created from our Japanese values of simplicity, quality and longevity.
“We offer clothing created from our Japanese values of simplicity, quality and longevity, and designed to help improve people’s daily lives. We look forward to connecting with local residents, commuters and the many visitors to this vibrant and cosmopolitan city,” commented Taku Morikawa, managing director of Uniqlo Europe, in a press release.
A first in Luxembourg
Spread over three floors and 950 m2, the store will offer clothing for men, women and children. Its range is known for its cashmere jumpers and very light down jackets. The company has also indicated that it is currently recruiting for its sales team.
This shop is Uniqlo’s first in Luxembourg, but its sixth in the Benelux region. The brand is present in Amsterdam, The Hague, Brussels (two outlets) and Antwerp. Uniqlo briefly set up shop in Metz, between 2017 and 2020, for its first address in the Greater Region.
Uniqlo claims to be Japan’s largest specialty retailer. It has 2,400 outlets worldwide and is owned by Fast Retailling Co. Ltd, which also owns the Comptoir des Cotonniers and Princesse tam.tam brands.
