Much celebratory drumming has welcomed three out of four total Uniqlo stores scheduled to open in Northern California this fall. So far we've got Uniqlos up and running at the Hillsdale Shopping Center in San Mateo as of October 11th, Stonestown Galleria in San Francisco since October 18th, and the Westfield Valley Fair Mall location in Santa Clara opened this past weekend on October 25th.
All of the locations features the brand's ultra-light down jackets, cashmere for under $100, merino wool sweaters for $20, and pieces from their Orla Kiely collab. If you live in one of these locations, congratulations. If you're in the East Bay, you can look forward to your Uniqlo opening on Bay Street this weekend on Friday, November 1.
