The wait is finally over, Vancouver’s first UNIQLO store will officially be opening on Friday, October 6, 2017.

The global Japanese retailer, known for its casual apparel sold all across the world, will be opening a 20,800 sq. ft. store at Metrotown in Burnaby, its third location in Canada, following the opening of two stores in Toronto last year.

Shoppers are still celebrating the recent opening of MUJI, a minimalist Japanese retailer with a wide range of generic products, including apparel & home goods. Now, UNIQLO will be joining the mall that’s just a short drive or Skytrain ride from Downtown Vancouver.

To celebrate the opening of the store at Metropolis at Metrotown, UNIQLO is launching a new brand campaign inspired by Vancouver’s signature contrast of natural and urban environments. Titled “Natural Union”, the campaign celebrates the contradictions that make up the Vancouver lifestyle.

To bring this to life, UNIQLO worked closely with locals who embrace these contrasting elements. For a sneak peek of what’s to come when UNIQLO meets Vancouver, you can check out the teaser of the Vancouver + Lifewear “natural union”.
