Kohsuke Kobayashi, Director of Operations of UNIQLO Spain, has highlighted the good health of the brand in the country thanks to the support of the Spaniards even during the last most complicated years. He commented: "The opening of the largest UNIQLO store in Spain to date is an important milestone for the expansion of the brand in the country. Madrid is a city full of modernity and traditions; a melting pot of cultures and Gran Vía, an unbeatable location to continue presenting our LifeWear philosophy to consumers".
The new UNIQLO store, whose operation has been advised by the real estate consultancy Cushman & Wakefield, will have four floors and more than 2000m2 where it will show the iconic products of the brand for men, women and children known for their minimalist style, timeless design and high quality that reflect the LifeWear philosophy. The second UNIQLO store in Madrid will become the brand's largest in Spain.
In addition, UNIQLO will hire a team of around 200 people to deliver the best customer experience the Japanese company is known for. The hiring process has already begun with the activation of a website that can be used by candidates to submit their applications: https://uniqlo.ofertas-trabajo.infojobs.net/
