Last May, Uniqlo celelebrated its arrival in Davao and in Mindanao during the Uniqlo Davao Launch Event at SM Lanang Premier. Utsuka Taiko Drummers opened the program with a heart-pounding performance of traditional Japanese music. No doubt, the music added a unique Japanese vibe to the much-awaited event.

The Uniqlo Store at SM Lanang Premier is the first in Mindanao. It is a spacious store, prominently located at the first floor of the mall. Shortly after it opened, Uniqlo Philippines opened another store in Davao, at SM City Davao Annex.

Katsumi Kubota, Chief Operating Officer of UNIQLO Philippines shares that he is thrilled to have two stores in Davao and that after a long time the brand has reached Mindanao.

Uniqlo Davao stores will offer a full range of LifeWear essentials for men and women of all ages. Likewise, Uniqlo Davao stores will carry proprietary clothing technology products such as AIRism and HEATTECH, and Uniqlo Sport. No doubt these will be great additions to every DavaoeƱo’s closet.
