"Opening in Vancouver was the natural next step for Uniqlo in Canada – we create clothing that is perfectly suited to the lifestyle of Vancouverites," said Yasuhiro Hayashi, COO of Uniqlo Canada.

The Metropolis at Metrotown Uniqlo marks the company’s third store in Canada. The retailer entered the Canadian market in fall 2016 with the opening of its first store in Toronto at CF Toronto Eaton Centre, followed by a second store opening at Toronto’s Yorkdale Shopping Centre.

Since opening its first store in Japan in 1984, Uniqlo has around 1,800 stores in 18 markets worldwide including China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, and more.
