Uniqlo Toronto

Uniqlo might open Toronto store in 2016

Uniqlo might (finally) be on its way to Toronto according to a report in The Financial Post. The Japanese clothing retailer has long been on the city's list of most coveted shops, but the waiting has been in vain up until now. The Post cites industry sources, who reveal that the first location is destined for a 35,000 square foot space in Yorkdale Mall should everything go according to plan. Following its arrival, Uniqlo would reportedly look to open both mall and street-front locations in the Toronto area.

Yorkdale is a rather obvious destination for the fashion retailer, which has beefed up its US presence in previous years. Not only is the mall expanding (yet again), but it's increasingly become a destination for big name American and international brands over the last half decade, with the arrival of J. Crew, Anthropologie, Top Shop and Massimo Dutti (to name only a few). Uniqlo would certainly fit this trend and likely increase the fashion stature of the mall with a flagship location.
