Well Boston and Chicago is the 3rd and 4th most dense cities after NY and SF. I don't think Boston would have much of a market through.

I think what Uniqlo meant by that Apple quote is brand recognition, they pretty much want to dominate the clothing market, like how the early Iphone dominated cellphone market

You would be best off with an XS. I'm 5'10, 175 and I wear S in outerwear.

About 2 years ago?

Shit is over, never coming back.

Garden State Plaza in Paramus, which has more retail space per square mile than any other city in the world.

Knee-deep in bullshit right now

NJ is also where they have their warehouse for e-commerce so that's probably one of the reasons too

re: uniqlo and apple, maybe this has something to do with it:

"We are not a fashion company," Yanai likes to say. "We are a technology company." He is so fond of this line, he repeats it during each of my three meetings with him. Finally, I ask him what kind of technology he'd like to see on Uniqlo's shelves. He goes wide-eyed and blue-sky on me. "One-size-fits-all clothing," he suggests, thinking of fabric that automatically adapts to the wearer's contours. "Clothes that do not require any laundry. Just rinse it in water, shake it off, and all the dirt is gone." He thinks a moment longer. "Or depending on your mood for the day, maybe fabric where the color may change."

still doesn't make that much sense but yeah.

Bad news for Suddenlee, I guess?

It probably isn't a big deal for them. SF members using it as a way to buy uniqlo probably only make up a tiny portion of their total business, especially since they do the same service for 100+ stores in NYC.

uniqlo could easily wipe out H&M if they wanted to

FYI Suddenlee is a proxy not for only Uniqlo rofl
post #5160 of 11493

Many of the 100+ stores Suddenlee proxies for either have their own webstores or have items readily available through other retailers (neither applying to Uniqlo at the moment), so I'm not sure how many of those other options are actually used by customers.
