The world is getting smaller. With news of the improving local economy and regional optimism in general, it's no surprise that more Asian brands are entering the country. This means more choices at competitive prices for consumers. You almost no longer need to go overseas just to make that special shopping trip. One of the Asian brands entering the market is top Japanese clothing company, Fast Retailing Co., which just opened their first UNIQLO store at the SM Mall of Asia today.
UNIQLO is adored worldwide for their well-made and affordable basics. In addition to the Philippines, they have stores in China, Malaysia, Taiwan, Thailand, South Korea, Hong Kong and Singapore. UNIQLO Philippines is a joint venture with the SM Retail Inc., the same group that brought in fast-fashion brand, Forever 21.
