Uniqlo Philippines will open its 60th store next week, at Ayala Malls Capitol Central in Bacolod.

The Japanese fast-fashion brand has been undertaking a rapid rollout of stores in the country with the latest store – to open on October 18 – the ninth in the Visayas region and the second in Bacolod. Its global flagship store in Glorietta 5, Makati City is the biggest store in the Philippines and in Southeast Asia.

“We really see and feel the warm reception of the people from your community,” Uniqlo Philippines marketing head Camille Pacis told the Philippine News Agency. “That’s why we are expanding more. We recognise the growth and the potential of Bacolod.

“(This) marks the growing commitment of Uniqlo to provide simple, innovative, and high-quality clothing to the Filipinos. In all our existing stores, the reception of our customers has been very good.”

Uniqlo Philippines will partner with the Negrense Volunteers for Change (NVC) Foundation in a charitable outreach to donate clothing to two communities within the city.
