Ja­panese gi­ant on way, jack­ets and all


PUFFER jack­ets will in­vade Bris­bane later this year, when Ja­panese re­tail gi­ant Uniqlo opens its first Queens­land stores.

In­dooroop­illy and Bris­bane City are on track to open by sum­mer with a huge 2000 sq m con­cept store ear­marked for the old Broad­way on the Mall.

The large store­front will make it Uniqlo’s sec­ond big­gest store in Aus­tralia, filled with the brand’s sig­na­ture sta- ple cloth­ing, home­wares and in­fa­mous puffer jack­ets.

Bris­bane shop­pers will have ac­cess to the full range of prod­ucts avail­able over­seas start­ing with the new spring/sum­mer range.

But if job­seek­ers were hop­ing to take ad­van­tage of Uniqlo’s new four-day work­ing week, they will be dis­ap­pointed; it’s cur­rently only avail­able to Ja­panese em­ploy­ees. JACINDA TUTTY
