Looks like Uniqlo is continuing on its quest to become the Japanese Gap, which honestly, is not something the world needs more of.
Fast Retailing Co, the casual-clothing store operator known for its Uniqlo brand, opened its first large-scale Uniqlo Plus outlet in Osaka’s Shinsaibashi district as part of efforts to improve its brand image by promoting high-quality products, rather than low-priced ones.
The Uniqlo Plus shops are considered to be a litmus test for future global operations. The company plans to open two or three more of these outlets in Japan by next August, the officials said. (Kyodo News)
