Uniqlo Comes to Seattle
Uniqlo, the Japanese clothing company, opened it's first store in the Northwest (U.S.) earlier this month. The store is located in Bellevue at the Bellevue Square Mall across Lake Washington from Seattle.
We went down there the first weekend it opened to check it out. There was actually a line to get into the store, but it moved quickly as did the long line to the register. We didn't try the line to the fitting room, that one didn't appear to be moving much at all. Other than that it seemed pretty similar to the locations I've been to in Japan.
Certainly, the store made a ton of money that first weekend and I'm sure it will do well in Seattle, with the area's large Asian population and Seattle's style in general.
Their Heattech shirts do make good baseball undershirts.
