Tomorrow October 21, 2011 is the opening of yet another Uniqlo store in New York City. I’m not sure if they will replicate the success of the global flagship store opening on October 14th on 5th Avenue, but they will certainly have all the bargains to lure you in. The store is located on 34th Street between 5th and 6th Avenue, and it will open at noon. This is also dubbed a global flagship and is the second largest global flagship in the world behind the just opened 5th Avenue one.
What are some of the bargains? Well, there is of course the $10 Uniqlo Jeans I mentioned in my prior post. The current Uniqlo homepage has an ad on the top that scrolls through some of the others. Also, there will be the limited edition tote bags again for the first 20,000 shoppers.
What can we expect? At the 5th Avenue store’s opening, after arriving at around 2:30 PM, there was still about a half hour wait, but there were no problems getting sizes at the time even though you needed to rummage a little bit at times. They staffed big time though to try to keep it all organized and flowing. As for getting a tote bag, there weren’t any issues on the opening day through the evening but 5th Avenue had 30,000 totes. We’ll see how the 34th Street opening goes.
