To celebrate, UNIQLO has created the free UNIQLO USA app for Apple products. It will be available on Android devices later this year. By using the app's Virtual Cam on UNIQLO logos and icons, fans will have access to behind-the-scenes videos, current employment opportunities, "weekly favorites" and a store locator. They will also be the first to know about new arrivals, special promotions and more.
To support their retail expansion, a new UNIQLO.com will debut this fall. Customers will find a more interactive site featuring digital life tools, how-to videos, in-depth product information and an insider look at LifeWear.
The new stores are strategically placed surrounding the brand's current flagship stores on the East and West Coasts. To staff the new stores, UNIQLO is still in process of hiring and training several hundred full-time and part-time employees at all levels.
