From Tokyo to Cebu, Japanese retail brand, Uniqlo, has finally arrived in the Queen City of the South! Whenever I'm traveling around Asia, I usually pop into a Uniqlo store to pick up gifts for family and friends. I love that I can now easily drop by the store to stock up on clothing basics and travel must-haves.
To celebrate the brand's arrival in Cebu, Uniqlo had a Pre-opening VIP Shopping Party and Saké Ceremony yesterday at The Northwing of SM Cebu.
The event started off with a fashion show featuring their latest collection. It was refreshing to witness a different kind of show. Uniqlo's LifeWear Concept was more dynamic and the models didn't just showcase the clothes but they also had a story to tell.
After the fashion show, we proceeded to enter the shop to see what they have in store for us Cebuanos. I noticed all the garments were very well merchandised. From tops to jackets, dresses, skirts, trousers and accessories, each product category was displayed in an organized manner.
I also liked that everything was labelled and there were signages of price discounts for customers' clear understanding. The Staff were very courteous and there were many people to help assist the shoppers. At least 5 Sales Associates kindly offered me a shopping basket to carry all the items I was buying.
Uniqlo announced the core products that they will offer in their much-awaited first store in Cebu. This product offering includes high quality denim jeans, stylish leggings, colourful chino shorts, graphic T-shirts, and travel essentials such as the innovative HeatTech, fleece, and Ultra Light Down Jackets amongst others.
To make their opening even more exciting, they're slashing prices of so many items in store! For a limited time, customers can avail of exclusive opening offers on their flannel shirts, cropped legging pants, fleece jackets, chino shorts, longsleeve shirts and more. So if you're looking to add fundamental clothing basics into your wardrobe or wanting to finalize your Christmas shopping, Uniqlo is the best place to shop for garments that combine fashion and functionality.
Denim has always been a huge trend for Fall so if you want to rock Fall-inspired looks without breaking a sweat, these sleeveless chambray dresses are a great way to incorporate Autumnal vibes into your everyday outfits! Pair them with ankle boots and a stylish fedora hat and you're good to go!
And if you're travelling to a colder climate, Uniqlo has got you covered. From Ultra Light Parkas to full zip printed fleece jackets, woollen scarves and HeatTech turtleneck sweaters, they've got lots of cold weather outfit options.
Uniqlo first launched in the Philippines in 2012. Since then, it has opened 24 stores nationwide. It will open its first store in Cebu tomorrow, October 23, 2015 at 8 AM on the 1st Level, The Northwing (beside Kultura) SM City Cebu.
