Fast-fashion retailer to open in D.C. landmark building
Uniqlo is opening a shop in one of the nation's most historic train stations.
The retailer will open its newest U.S. outpost on Oct. 10, at Union Station in Washington, D.C. It will be located on the main level, adjacent to Amtrak ticketing, and will open at 7 a.m. during the week to serve morning commuters.
The 3,400-sq-ft. store will carry products for men and women, with an offering that emphasizes the brand’s light, packable essentials. There will be a special focus on grab-and-go items that meet the needs of customers passing through the highly trafficked corridor.
The Union Station site will be Uniqlo's 46th store in the U.S. and second in the D.C. metro area nearly a year after its opening at Tyson’s Corner in McLean, Virginia. The new store also follows the opening of a pop-up shop on F Street which opened on Sept. 28.
Uniqlo, a division of Fast Retailing, has more than 1,900 stores in 19 markets worldwide.
