Yes you read that right. A small snippet in Philippine Star Online mentioned that Uniqlo will finally open in the Philippines.
Uniqlo, a Japanese retailing fave, is definitely opening at the SM Mall of Asia next year. Meanwhile, followers of H&M are still waiting for a Philippine branch to happen.
I looked at Uniqlo’s website but there was no mention of a future Philippine branch. I hope Philippine Star’s source is reliable. I have lots of friends who are big fans of Uniqlo. I’m not but I haven’t really explored Uniqlo when I was in Bangkok, Singapore, and Hong Kong. We already have a Muji here and I still haven’t bought anything there. I find them too expensive for very simple products.
