After three stores in New Delhi, Uniqlo is now looking to open stores in Mumbai and Bangalore. The Japanese apparel retailer has exceeded its targets by 30 per cent in value terms. In winter, a lot of products went out of stock by mid-December and the retailer had to airship products multiple times.
As of now Uniqlo sources from India cotton shirts, innerwear and loungewear. But ultimately the plan is to make in India and sell in India. All of Uniqlo’s production—not just for selling in India, but even beyond India—will be sourced locally.
Uniqlo currently retails in over 23 countries and offers high functional and high quality apparel called Life Wear. This is inspired by life’s needs and provides thoughtful and timeless clothing available in a variety of colors and styles for people of all ages. The clothing comes from the Japanese values of simplicity, quality and longevity and is for men, women, children and babies.
Uniqlo also has Ultra-Light Down and Heat Tech garments as well as products featuring premium fabrics, including denim, extra fine merino, cashmere and more. Uniqlo works actively across product segments and in many cases creates new categories. For example, winter thermal wear. Uniqlo has created a category of thin layered thermal wear which has been a big hit worldwide.
