Scheduled for Fall/Winter this year, Uniqlo’s strategic expansion will see the unveiling of five new stores across Texas and six in California, including new cities like San Diego and Sacramento. 

Among the key locations in Texas are the Memorial City Mall and First Colony Mall in Houston and Sugar Land, respectively. In Dallas, the brand will make its mark at Galleria Dallas, The Parks Mall at Arlington in South Arlington, and Stonebriar Centre in Frisco.

The Arden Fair and Westfield Galleria at Roseville will welcome Uniqlo to Sacramento, while San Diego residents can look forward to the brand’s arrival at Westfield UTC. Additionally, Los Angeles and the San Francisco/San Jose area will witness new Uniqlo stores at Westfield Century City, Westfield Fashion Square in Sherman Oaks, and Westfield Oakridge in San Jose.

The expansion is part of the brand’s ambitious plan to open over 20 new stores in North America in 2024, and its aim to reach 200 stores in North America by 2027.

“We are thrilled to be coming to Texas, a state where we have seen positive customer demand and where Uniqlo LifeWear products can perfectly serve the needs of the various lifestyles and climates throughout Houston and Dallas,” said Yoshihide Shindo, Uniqlo USA CEO. 

“In addition to this incredibly momentous step for Uniqlo in the U.S. and for our business globally, we are also furthering our commitment to the west coast. We have been listening to our customers in these regions, where we have seen strong interest from e-commerce, and look forward to bringing them the full Uniqlo LifeWear experience when we open our doors this Fall/Winter.”

Uniqlo opened its first North American location in the U.S. in 2005. The retailer turned a profit in North America in fiscal year 2022, followed by significant growth for the fiscal year ending on August 31, 2023.
