We reported in February that Uniqlo would leverage its presence in SF's Union Square and open more Bay Area locations before it moves into the Midwest, which is apparently a bit of a scary proposition. Now, WWD reports those new stores will be in San Jose, East Bay and North Bay.
Uniqlo opened its first West Coast location in San Francisco in October to an overwhelmingly positive reception. Joe Montana and a slew of other local celebs attended the opening, and the store had lines out the door for days afterwards.
Uniqlo also plans to expand to Racked hubs Boston and Philly, woot!
