Second Belgian Uniqlo store will be in Wijnegem

After it opened its first Belgian store in Antwerp, Japanese fashion chain Uniqlo will open its second store in Wijnegem Shopping Center early next year.

"Faith in a second location"

"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."

 

Japanese Uniqlo opened its first Belgian store in Antwerp, on the Meir, in October 2015. With its plans to open a new store in Wijnegem Shopping Center, it will make its way to the biggest shopping center in the Benelux, filled with 250 stores and more than 60,000 sqm of store space.
