"We have recently opened our first Belgian Uniqlo store in Antwerp and we are grateful to see how its citizens have embraced Uniqlo and our LifeWear philosophy", according to Fast Retailing Group Senior Vice President and Uniqlo Europe COO Takao Kuwahara.  "This first successful launch gives us the faith to present Uniqlo LifeWear on another location in Belgium as well."
