AusBN – Following the opening of its first Australian site last year, Uniqlo is set to open its sixth store in Westfield Parramatta this weekend.
Uniqlo opened its first Australian store in October last year at the AMP Shopping Centre’s Macquarie Centre.
The new store will occupy around 1500 square metres and will offer a wide range of products.
Uniqlo chief development officer Matt Parker said: "We are in constant conversions with the major landlords and retail property agents as we seek out new stores across the country.
"Where possible, we look at the central business districts of each capital city and then roll out to the suburbs, as we did in Melbourne and Sydney. We are very happy to be in association with Westfield with our two new stores.
"The redevelopment of the shopping centres and the city-based strips have helped put Australia on the radar for many international retailers.
"Furthermore, the changing shift in inner city living and the new apartment projects has definitely changed the way retail is offered in capital cities and we will be looking to expand where we can with new stores in the new projects."
