    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.

    In a visit to Uniqlo HQ, a reporter saw a map of SF, on which they were considering the location of the new store. All the major clothing retailers were marked. The one non-clothing retailer marked was the Apple Store.

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

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

    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.

    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.
