It has been years in the making—seriously, we first addressed rumors in early 2012—but an area Uniqlo store finally has an opening date. Set to unlock its doors on Friday, October 16 (of 2015, in case you're worried), the 16,000-square-foot store will be a part of the Bellevue Collection's new, expanding wing that will also house a Zara, opening in the coming months.
And yes, I did say Bellevue. Sorry Seattleites but an Eastside drive is in order to shop the Japanese fast-fashion brand. Hopefully it won't be long before we see a location on our side of the lake.
In addition to providing us all with casual, affordable basics, Uniqlo is also getting involved with the community by partnering with the Seahawks to start a youth mentorship program.
Stay tuned as we bring you our favorite fall picks from the store, plus all the need-to-know surrounding the opening events, prizes, and sales.
