Uniqlo -- back in Manhattan?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
This morning, the back page of one of the subway papers, perhaps AM New York, had a full page ad for Uniqlo touting their new store at 76 Greene St., in Soho.

I think this was where the holiday store was late last year.

The Uniqlo website says it opens Autumn 06, but the ad suggests it is open already.

Has anyone been there?

HHHHhmmmmmmmm... I suprised that more haven't opened through out the country yet. There's now officially a total of four stores in the united states. Could we be seeing more in the future.

It might be only until the end of June, although closing in June and them reopening a few months later would be strange. They probably just want to make a big deal about making it permanent for the upcoming Christmas shopping season. Here's the press release off the website: January 24, 2006 NEW YORK and TOKYO-Due to the overwhelming success of its first full-sized store in New York City, UNIQLO, Japan's most popular apparel retailer and a worldwide leader in casual wear, today announced that it will keep its SoHo store open through June. Not only will New York shoppers continue to have easy access to UNIQLO's winter line of high-quality, low-cost fashion forward basics, but they will also get to experience its colorful and versatile spring/summer line.

Went there today. In the fall they are moving to a three-level store on Broadway. The stock will be much better they say. They were actually apologizing for the limited offerings in the current store. In the jeans department, they have something like the great raw type that J brought back from Japan, and a few other types, but...yeah, limited. None of those nice cotton linen ones, for ex. One current virtue is the wide selection of socks and solid color t shirts in a big rainbow of colors.

Hope the full line in the big store is a little jazzier.

I suspect that once they figure out what US buyers really want, they will roll out the stores more.

They really don't have raw denim, it's more of a one wash type and it's not hard to tell which is which. The selvage is washed and about half way down the jeans rack. It also says it on the tag. The one wash or raw, ar at the far left of the shelf, they are a lot lighter than the selvage also.

What they NEED to do is open an f'ing store in Seattle... I need some cheap ass decent jeans.
