Back in February, we speculated then confirmed that Uniqlo was set to open its very first Southern California location at South Coast Plaza. After announcing additional Cali shops and teasing with two pop-ups, Uniqlo SCP will finally open its permanent doors this Friday, September 5 at 10:00am.
Per an official release from the Japanese retailer, the official store will be located in the Sears Wing on Level 1. The grand opening celebration hosted by Uniqlo CEO Larry Meyer will start around 9:30am and will feature both a ribbon-cutting and performance by traditional Japanese Taiko drummers.
That's not all: Uniqlo will also be rolling out promos and giveaways that day and all weekend long, including a release of 500 limited-edition tote bags per day and a free Heattech item with every $50 purchase. Be there!
