Uniqlo opening web shop in five new countries

Japanse fashion concern Uniqlo has opened its British web shop to another five countries... but Belgium and the Netherlands are not included.

A German store next year

Until now, only British customers were able to buy Uniqlo items on a web shop belonging to the Japanese company. From now it will also be delivering to German, Spanish, Italian, Irish and French customers, but payments can only be done in British pounds and delivery costs are 7.50 pounds (8.4 euro), regardless of the size of the order. Delivery is guaranteed within 6 days.

 

In Western Europe, Uniqlo only has offline stores in Great Britain (10 stores) and France (4 stores). It will opening a fifth store in France next year, in the Parisian neighbourhood called Marais. Its very first German store will arrive early next year in Berlin and apparently plans for Spain (Barcelona) and Italy (Milan) are underway, with Uniqlo scouting for ideal locations.
