Uniqlo opens third flagship store in Japan
Uniqlo opened its second Osaka-based flagship store today, just outside the Hankyu Umeda Station.
Several multilingual staff work a the store – a sign that Uniqlo is looking to capitalise on wealthy tourists visiting Japan.
The 3,000-square-metre store is Fast Retailing's (Uniqlo's parent) third flagship outlet in Japan, following stores in Tokyo's Ginza ans Osaka's Shinsaibashi neighbourhoods.
The opening of the store was brought forward by 15 minutes to accommodate the 2,300 customers who queued outside to sneak a peek.
