Stop everything: In a hot-off-the-press release this morning, Uniqlo has revealed the coordinates and opening dates of their five new SoCal stores. In addition to bringing affordable apparel to South Coast Plaza and Beverly Center, which we first broke back in February, the Japanese retailer is rolling out shops at the Glendale Galleria, Northridge Fashion Center and Los Cerritos Mall.
As far as opening dates, the brand says South Coast Plaza will open first (September 5), followed by Glendale Galleria and Northridge Fashion Center (September 26), Beverly Center (October 10), and Los Cerritos (spring 2015). In addition to carrying gear for men, women and kids, all stores will offer T-shirts and accessories from Uniqlo's "i am OTHER" collaboration with Pharrell Williams. Stay tuned for more!
Update: An earlier version of this story stated South Coast Plaza's debut as August 29 and Northridge Fashion Center's opening date as October 31; the brand revised the dates shortly after their original announcement.
