It’s a big week for Sydney shoppers. Following yesterday’s announcement that Swedish fashion label H&M will open in Sydney’s north at the Macquarie Centre, everyone’s favourite multicoloured basics brand, UNIQLO, will open under the same roof. After three bustling months on Pitt Street, UNIQLO’s second Sydney venue at the Macquarie Centre will be a colossal 1514-square-metre space.
UNIQLO Australia CEO Shoichi Miyasaka said, “We’re very excited to be bringing UNIQLO to two great new locations in Sydney, now adding the Macquarie Centre to the list.” The store will feature UNIQLO’s spring/summer '14 collection, including a large range of linen polos, the internationally celebrated AIRism range and everything you’ve come to love in its men’s, women’s, kids and babies collections.
The Macquarie Centre promises to be a suitably modern venue to match UNIQLO’s flagship international counterparts, with the building currently undergoing a $440 million redevelopment that will include a fresh food market and more than 130 stores.
Miyasaka says, “Growing the brand in this market is obviously very important, and from what we’ve seen so far, Australians have responded really well to our offering.”
