Surprise! Uniqlo Is Finally Launching E-Commerce, Starting Next Week
October 19, 2012
Phew! Finally! We’ve been wishing and hoping for this moment for ages. Not unlike when our flip-phone carrying dad made the switch to iPhone, this is a moment to celebrate. The last bastions of pure brick-and-mortar retail stores are succumbing to the allure of the internets, (from Club Monaco and Zara), Uniqlo, our favorite Japanese retailer announced to WWD today that they will launch e-commerce in the U.S. sometime next week. And just in time for the holidays, the launch will include exclusive promotions, like online promotions like $9.90 Japanese engineered denim, and cashmere sweaters for $59.90. Now if only H&M would get their e-commerce act together, all would be right with the online shopping world.
Tell us what you think: will you shop Uniqlo online, or would you rather experience the stores?
