Uniqlo clothing retailer says it will open five more stores in Singapore, diluting its chain there to 31 stores.
The first store next door will open in Ang Mo Kio and Clementi in the first quarter of this year. Uniqlo says the 1,297-square-foot store will be a testing ground for inclusive in-store features such as a wheelchair fitting room, community partnership projects and sustainable development initiatives.
The location of the other four new stores has not yet been confirmed.
Yuki Yamada, CEO of Uniqlo in Singapore and Malaysia, said: “To complement our existing network of shopping malls, a new store at Ang Mo Kia 51 will bring LifeWear’s life closer to home for heart residents so they can enjoy the convenience of shopping.
“As a global retailer, we are in a unique position to leverage our business for the benefit of the community around us, offering more inclusiveness and making a significant contribution to a more sustainable society,” she added.
The brand works with special education schools and social service organizations to provide customers with special needs with shopping assistance at the right time, which must be booked in advance.
The company has also launched the Uniqlo Repair Studio store, the first permanent offer in Asia that will extend the life of Uniqlo clothing. Trained staff on site will repair and replace damaged clothing.
