Japanese fashion retailer Uniqlo continues its series of store openings, this time in Butuan City in Agusan del Norte. 

Opening on March 26, the 859-square-meter store is located on the ground floor of SM City Butuan, along JC Aquino Avenue.

“We are delighted to partner with Doraemon,” said Koji Yanai, group senior executive officer at Fast Retailing. “Over the past two decades, Uniqlo has undertaken numerous sustainability initiatives through business to contribute to a better, more sustainable world. We believe that the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, social transformations, and evolving consumer attitudes make it more important than ever to collaborate with customers and other stakeholders in driving positive social change.”
