Singapore - UNIQLO, Japan’s No. 1 Casual Wear Brand, continues to expand its presence in Singapore with the upcoming opening of its’ largest store to date. UNIQLO Bugis+ opened its doors to the public on June 8, 2012.

Located in connecting units at Level 1 and 2, this latest UNIQLO outlet is a double-storey that spans an area of approximately 20,000 square feet with an in-store escalator that joins the two levels. Following the recent success of the Parkway Parade opening where 450 customers queued up early on before the store opened, UNIQLO Bugis+ will be the brand’s 7th store and its first street-level shop in Singapore.

Situated in the Central Business District, Bugis+ (formerly known as Iluma) is within the prominent shopping area of Bugis district which caters to a sizeable number of students, youths and young professionals. An iconic building known for its architecture, the fa├žade of the mall features a crystal mesh frontage, highlighting its motif of light and illumination.

Currently undergoing asset enhancement work, tenants at Level 1 and 2 consisting of various brands, including UNIQLO, are expected to begin trading in June this year. Bugis+ is right across Bugis Junction, another go-to shopping locale in the area, and is connected via a link bridge.

According to Mr. Satoshi Onoguchi, Managing Director of UNIQLO (Singapore) Pte Ltd and UNIQLO Malaysia Sdn Bhd, “We are excited to be able to open a UNIQLO store in Bugis+ and one that is the largest store in Singapore to date. Being located at the Bugis area makes the place very ideal as the district is a key shopping destination. This is in line with UNIQLO’s continuation of its global expansion plans by opening more stores in strategic locations.”

“UNIQLO’s presence there will make the brand even more accessible to people especially the younger set. We see a lot of the mix and match fashion among the teens that hang around the Bugis area, hence UNIQLO opening in the area complements our philosophy since the crowd has a very street style and mix and match vibe which is what UNIQLO is about,” he added.

With a larger floor space and a full selection of the brand’s casual wear staples, UNIQLO Bugis+ is certainly set to be a go-to destination for the area’s shopping crowd.
