Global apparel retailer Uniqlo will open a new store this fall at Woodfield Mall in Schaumburg.
The 9,500-square-foot store will be Uniqlo's second location in the greater Chicago area, following the opening of its flagship store on North Michigan Avenue in the fall of 2015, and will offer LifeWear for men, women and kids.
"We are thrilled to extend our presence in the Midwest with our second store in Chicago, a city we have enjoyed calling home since opening our first store on the Magnificent Mile three years ago," said Hiroshi Taki, Uniqlo USA CEO. "Woodfield Mall has been a premiere shopping destination in the Chicagoland area for many years, and continues to offer a modern, exciting experience for locals and visitors alike. We look forward to opening our doors in Schaumburg and meeting the needs of our customers with unparalleled service and everyday essentials that are made for all."
The new store will carry the brand's iconic cold-weather essentials made with innovative fabrics, such as Ultra Light Down -- warm, light jackets that pack neatly into a pouch -- and HEATTECH, a thin layer of innerwear designed with heat-retaining properties. The store will also offer jeans made from authentic Japanese Kaihara denim, 100 percent cashmere sweaters for under $100, fleece and casual wear.
LifeWear is the Uniqlo commitment to creating clothing that meets the needs of everyone's daily lifestyles, the company said.
Uniqlo has more than 2,000 stores in 19 markets worldwide, including 48 stores in the United States. Since opening its first store in Hiroshima, Japan, in 1984, Uniqlo has created apparel that comes from the Japanese values of simplicity, quality and longevity, featuring universal designs and comfort.
