Malaysia’s favourite everyday-wear quality brand, Uniqlo is set to open the country’s first-ever roadside megastore in DA Square @ Damansara Avenue.
The store that will open in December 2020 will be community-based, “surrounded by residential townships, schools and office buildings”, Uniqlo Malaysia said in a statement on its Facebook page. It said the store “has been carefully designed to ensure enough space and accessibility for all, including families with children, elderly people and people with disability, and will feature its own car park for our customers”.
The announcement of the store coincides with the brand’s 10th anniversary in Malaysia this month, explained the Uniqlo Malaysia and Singapore CEO, Yuki Yamada.
“Over the years, we have developed a strong presence here with an online store and 51 physical stores in shopping malls located in major cities and towns across 12 states,” he said.
Yamada said the roadside store marks Uniqlo’s “continuous expansion in this market and hoped it would complement their existing network of mall-based outlets”.
“Essentially, the new Uniqlo roadside store will serve as a close-to-home store for customers in Bandar Sri Damansara and surrounding townships, giving locals the chance to enjoy a quick and convenient trip to the store,” added Yamada.
Malaysia will be the fifth country outside Japan and the third in Southeast Asia to have such a roadside store.
