Uniqlo Opens at SM City North Edsa Tomorrow

This week is pretty darn exciting but it gets even more exciting because another Uniqlo store is opening in the Philippines! Shopping, cool music and awesome clothes all in one place? Best of both worlds, I reckon. It is the best place to do your Christmas shopping.

It’s been 5 months since Uniqlo, the Japanese retailer of affordable casual clothing, opened its first store at SM Mall of Asia in Pasay City. Check out my first blog post here and the take a peek at the faces of Uniqlo Philippines as well.

As Uniqlo achieves world domination and covets the No. 1 place in the apparel world, it's all set to open its second store in the Philippines at SM City North Edsa The Block tomorrow. The world needs (we need) what Uniqlo uniquely have to offer. So save the date: November 16.

That being said, I'm quite lucky to be invited at Uniqlo's Exclusive Pre-Opening Shopping event last night. Standing amid the stacks of brightly-hued graphic t-shirt, and endless array of fleece and denim, I, along other media and celebrity guests, were excited to walk in for some serious shopping spree. I went a tad cray and a wee bit excited on their new designs.

With its innovative, modern space and illuminated glass display windows, it houses mannequins with their spanking new collection.



The new Uniqlo store is located at the 2nd floor of The Block. Uniqlo chose SM City North Edsa as the location for its second store in order to serve residents in Quezon City and northern part of Metro Manila. So no need to drive all the way to SM MOA for those who live up north.

Take a sneak peek at Uniqlo SM North Edsa store:



My fave spot is the new Uniqlo kids collection. I got Heattech t-shirts for my little girl. Yay! These Heattech pieces have heat-retaining synthetic fabric. It  is not rocket science but it's really amazing because even if the ac is on full blast, you'll begin to feel it getting warm after just a few moments. It is lightweight, soft and very comfortable too. Perfect for that cool Christmas breeze. :) Indeed, Uniqlo brings together the latest technology and design to transform Filipino's retail experience to the highest level.

In celebration of the grand opening of the SM North Edsa store, UNIQLO is offering special promotional pricing. You have to hurry because Opening Sale ends November 18th. So go get the best stuff while it lasts! Once the store door opens, look for slimfit and skinny jeans in a rainbow of colors, and T-shirts for only P590, as well as fleece jackets for only P790. Major must-haves!


Uniqlo products like the Men’s Tokyo-Omiyage graphic t-shirt (regular price P790) can be purchased for only P590, while the Men’s Regular Fit Straight Jeans (regular price P990) is also offered on sale at P590. The Tokyo-Omiyage graphic t-shirts are so cool, it's their nth collab and it seems to get better every time.


For the women, the Women’s Reversible Fleece Jacket (regular price P990) can be purchased at a low price of P790 while the Women’s Heattech Short Sleeves T-Shirt (regular price P590) is offered at P490.


Remember, guys, the quickest way to know a woman is to go shopping with her. If you love a girl, just take her shopping here, and she will love you forever.

Also, if you guys are having LQ or lover's quarrel, there is nothing that shopping at Uniqlo can't fix! Yes? :)

So get ready for some early holiday shopping! It's the best present you can give yourself and to your family. With all this excitement and  amazing pieces, it'll surely be a madhouse tomorrow. Just make sure to go there really early and expect long lines (the kind you would find outside an Apple store) so be prepared. I wonder  if your "quick shopping trip" would  turn into full on shopping spree when you see their newest collection. Hihi I bet it's going to be a battlefield because for some, shopping in Uniqlo isn't just a hobby, it's a mission. But don't worry, my friend, because Uniqlo has a huge army of well-trained and very friendly staff ready for a major assault from shoppers. :)

You ready to shop? Off on a shopping mission? Visit the newest Uniqlo store in the Philippines at the 2nd floor of the SM City North Edsa The Block this weekend to enjoy these limited special offers. Store hours are from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.

Happy shopping!

*Thanks heaps to Uniqlo for the invite, free shopping spree and for the Uniqlo 2013 planner. Nicely done and uniquely designed. Love it. :)
