Japanese global apparel retailer Uniqlo has opened its first store in the country at the Ambience Mall Vasant Kunj in New Delhi.
The new store is spread over three floors with a total retail space of 35,000 square feet and will house the latest collections from the brand.
Special collections such as ‘The Kurta Collection’ by Delhi-based designer Rina Singh and collections by international designers like Ines de la Fressange and Hana Tajima will also be showcased at the store.
Commenting on the opening of the store, Tadashi Yanai Uniqlo founder and chairman in a statement said, “Fast Retailing has long wished to open stores in India given the tremendous potential of such a large nation. We began recruiting here at the end of last year, and have been impressed by the exceptional talent, ambition and diligence of the young people we encountered and welcomed aboard.
“In the years ahead, we aim to enhance lifestyles in India by offering more innovative apparel that draws on the nation’s distinct culture and traditions. We wish to contribute to India’s economic development in the process,” he added.
Uniqlo has also launched its app and will offer a coupon worth Rs 200 ($3) to each person downloading the app. The company will be adding two more stores later this year at DLF Place Saket, and DLF Cyber Hub in the city Gurugram.
