If you're a fan of easy-to-wear, quality apparel, you might want to sit down for this next bit of news: Everyone's favourite casual apparel brand, UNIQLO, has expanded its presence at Toronto’s downtown store location!
On May 10, UNIQLO unveiled an extra 2,340 square feet of retail space to the current UNIQLO shop at the CF Toronto Eaton Centre store. The section showcases the spring/summer UT (UNIQLO T-shirt) collection and is here to stay, making this the ultimate UT shopping destination in all of Canada!
But, what is UT? In short, it stands for UNIQLO T-shirts. The Spring/Summer UT line will feature all styles of tees in over 1,000 different patterns. So you’ll definitely be able to pick up some fresh shirts for yourself and literally everyone you know without worrying that you'll be caught sporting the same thing.
The new UT section of the UNIQLO Flagship store will add an entirely new floor to the existing footprint, meaning you’ll now have three stories worth of internationally renowned brand apparel to browse, marvel at, and add to your wardrobe!
This will be the only UNIQLO UT section of its kind in Canada, and it officially opened its doors at the Eaton Centre on May 10. To celebrate its launch, all customers who visit this location’s new department on opening day and purchase a minimum of $100 worth of UNIQLO apparel (before taxes) will receive a limited-edition tote bag designed by the talented New York-based artist and UT collaborator, Jason Polan. Polan has created custom designs just for this special occasion: from one-of-a-kind CN Tower illustrations to drawings of streetcars and racoons, this is one trendy tote you’ll be proud to sport around the city.
The UNIQLO Eaton Centre store opened in 2016 and was the first UNIQLO store to be introduced in Canada. The company has since grown to 11 stores Canada-wide and has catered to the positive demands of their customers in the GTA. The opening of the UT collection’s floor is the company’s way of responding to the love and support they’ve received from customers over the past few successful years.
What will you find, exactly? You’ll be able to check out UT designs featuring: SUPER MARIO FAMILY MUSEUM, Mobile Suit GUNDAM 40th Anniversary, Master of Graphics Ts, including Star Wars, The Brands, and MAGIC FOR ALL (a collaborative effort with Disney and Jason Polan’s MARVEL x JASON POLAN collection), among tons of others.
If you’re more of a modern-art connoisseur, there will also be the MoMA-approved SPRZ NY (“Surprise New York”) collection, showcasing designs from timeless artists like Andy Warhol, Keith Haring, and more.
Check out the new UT expansion – we bet you’ll walk out with a whole new irresistible summer wardrobe! If you can’t make it in that day, no sweat. Visit their online shop at UNIQLO.CA, and download their mobile app available on the Apple or Google Play Store.
