On Thursday, October 13th, I attended the exclusive opening of the Uniqlo global flagship store at 5th Avenue and 53rd Street. The massive 89,000 square foot store opened to the public at noon on Friday, October 14th, with a line that extended down to 6th Avenue.
Special grand opening deals valid through October 30th include $12.90 heattech long sleeve tees, cashmere v-neck sweaters from $49.90, $59.90 premium down ultra light jackets and $9.90 women's skinny fit and men's regular fit straight jeans. I did see a few pieces that caught my eye during the opening, especially from the final collection of the +J line for this fall/winter. So I'll definitely be back soon to shop!
Uniqlo will also be opening up another NYC location at 34th Street between 5th and 6th Avenue on Friday, October 21st.
