New York City — Global retailer UNIQLO will accelerate its rapid growth in North America with new stores across the U.S. and Canada in 2024. With a focus on eastern and western regions, including new markets, the brand looks to achieve its next milestone in the new year, doubling the current year’s store openings with over 20 new locations planned throughout North America in 2024.

In 2022, the Japan-based brand initiated a plan to reach 200 stores in North America by 2027. Its first North American location opened in the U.S. in 2005.

“We couldn’t be more excited to enter the next phase of our North American expansion plan and serve more customers in the U.S. and Canada,” says Daisuke Tsukagoshi, CEO of UNIQLO North America. “Stores are the heartbeat of our business, where we can engage with our local communities, hear directly from our customers, and best understand their needs to continue to improve and perfect our products. We’re looking forward to a big year ahead.”

While accelerating the pace of new store openings, the company expects to achieve double-digit sales growth in its existing stores.

The new UNIQLO stores opening in spring 2024 are as follows:


• Tacoma Mall (Tacoma, Wash.)

• Alderwood Mall (Lynnwood, Wash.)

• South Shore Plaza (Braintree, Mass.)

• Providence Place (Providence, R.I.) – new market

• Staten Island Mall (Staten Island, N.Y.)


• CF Fairview Mall (Toronto)
