Known for its affordable casual wear, the brand is expected to be moving on Sept. 26 into the 9,000-square-foot space near Target that was formerly occupied by Forever 21.
“It’s really going to fit in that wing of retailers,” she said. “It’s something that our customers have been asking for.”
The first UNIQLO opened in Hiroshima, Japan, in 1994 and has since grown to 1,300 stores around the world, though it’s new to Southern California.
Stores are also set to open in September at the Northridge Fashion Center and the Beverly Center.
“The response to our northern California stores has been fantastic, so we are thrilled to bring the UNIQLO experience to our fans in Los Angeles, a city known for its diversity and energetic lifestyle,” said Larry Meyer, chief executive of UNIQLO USA, in a statement.
