UNIQLO operator Fast Retailing on Wednesday said that it will open its first store in Indonesia this summer, marking the company’s entry into the world’s fourth most populous country.
The store will be located inside the new LOTTE Shopping Avenue shopping complex, currently being developed in the Kuningan district of Jakarta. Kuningan is already the home to many bustling shopping malls. With a sales floor of almost 2,680 square meters, the UNIQLO LOTTE Shopping Avenue Store will offer a selection of UNIQLO men’s, women’s, kids’ and babies’ clothing lines.
Fast Retailing said it views Asia as offering tremendous opportunities for growth, and the company plans to accelerate store openings around the region. At the end of January, UNIQLO operated 1,206 stores in 13 markets including 23 stores in the four Southeast Asian countries of Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand and the Philippines.
