Whenever I visit Tokyo, Hong Kong, Singapore, Bangkok and Taipei, a trip to the Uniqlo store is always a must. I just love their always current merchandise – be it shirts, round-necks, denims, walking shorts and what-have-yous. The price tags are never exorbitant. And the quality is reliable.
So just imagine how wide my eyes opened upon learning that the Philippines (with the help of SM) will have its first Uniqlo store opening this coming Friday, June 15. I know that the mystique of not having one in our shores will already disappear, while lessening the appeal of visiting their overseas branches. But it still doesn’t make me lose the interest of buying a Uniqlo item.
Check out the store at SM Mall of Asia and you’ll see what I mean. I’m pretty sure opening day will have an avalanche of customers. If you hate big crowds like I do, then you can schedule a visit another day. 😉
