UNIQLO to open its first ever retail store in South Australia at Myer Centre Adelaide

This is the second time that UNIQLO is partnering with Starhill Global REIT, which owns Myer Centre Adelaide

Japanese global apparel retailer, UNIQLO, reveals it will bring its world-class retail experience and famed service to South Australia. Responding to high demand from local customers, UNIQLO will open its much-anticipated first retail store in the final quarter of 2022, at the Myer Centre Adelaide. 

UNIQLO Myer Centre Adelaide, set in the largest shopping centre in Adelaide’s CBD, will offer local customers a full line-up of LifeWear apparel for men, women and kids, alongside seasonal collaborations with designers such as JW Anderson, Christophe Lemaire and Jil Sander and its UT (UNIQLO graphic T-shirt) range. The store will be located close to the South Entrance of the Myer Centre Adelaide, and will span approximately 1,000m2 of floor space.

Further to bringing UNIQLO closer to people in South Australia, the new store will also contribute to the local economy, initially generating approximately 80 employment opportunities for the local retail industry.

Kensuke Suwa, Chief Operating Officer of UNIQLO Australia, said: “Our South Australian customers have shown tremendous support since we arrived in Australia. This opening is not only a special milestone for the shoppers in the Myer Centre Adelaide, it is also for everyone at UNIQLO. Whenever we open a new store, we want to deliver the best possible UNIQLO and LifeWear experience for local customers. We worked hard to find the perfect location, and the Myer Centre Adelaide is a wonderful place that sets us up perfectly to put our best foot forward in South Australia.”

A spokesperson from Myer Centre Adelaide said: “We are pleased to welcome UNIQLO to Myer Centre Adelaide, and are excited to be home to the first UNIQLO store in South Australia.

The addition of UNIQLO will further enhance the overall vibrancy of Myer Centre Adelaide and contribute to creating an unparalleled shopping experience for our customers.”

This is the second time that UNIQLO is partnering with Starhill Global REIT, which owns Myer Centre Adelaide. In 2018, UNIQLO opened its first store in Perth, Western Australia, at Plaza Arcade, which is also owned by Starhill Global REIT.”

UNIQLO Myer Centre Adelaide will mark the retailer’s 26th store in Australia. The store also marks UNIQLO’s fifth state, alongside Victoria, New South Wales, Western Australia, and Queensland.
