Uniqlo will open its first store in Rome’s Galleria Alberto Sordi on Via del Corso, a key boulevard in the city’s historical heart, in the spring of next year.
The new store will feature clothing labels for women, men, and children and have a total sales floor area of more than 1300 sqm divided across three floors. Following the opening of its first location in Milan’s Piazza Cordusio in September 2019, this will be Uniqlo’s second store in the country.
“It is an honour for us to open in the capital of Italy, a city with such a strong cultural heritage, and increase our presence in the Italian market with a store in the Galleria Alberto Sordi, an important retail location that first opened 100 years ago,” said Mark Barnatovic, Uniqlo Italy COO.
“We look forward to offering our Uniqlo LifeWear, apparel that is created from our Japanese values of quality, simplicity, and longevity and helps improve people’s daily lives, to Uniqlo fans and customers in Italy as well as visitors from abroad.”
Uniqlo has also increased its presence in India, opening its first store in Mumbai in July, taking the brand’s store count in the nation to 11.
