From Tokyo to Manila and now in Pampanga!
Heads up, Kapampangans! Here's another reason why you live here in Pampanga! Uniqlo opened its fourth store out in the metro and decided to locate here in our province! Hmmm Kapampangan's must be really good when it comes to fashion.
UNIQLO opens first store in the province
May 24, 2013, Pampanga, Philippines–UNIQLO opens today its first store in the province located at SM City Pampanga. This is the leading Japanese global fashion brand’s fourth store in the country and its first outside of Metro Manila. It follows UNIQLO’s highly successful store openings at SM Mall of Asia in Pasay City and SM North EDSA The Block in Quezon City last year, and the opening of its 3rd store at SM Aura Premier in Taguig City held last week.

My dad was the happiest people when he heard that Uniqlo will be opening its fourth branch here in Pampanga. My dad is an avid fan of tennis since then. In fact, he's still updated up to now and one of his favorite player is the Superstar Novak Djokovic. He was the one who influenced me to watch this sport and I eventually learned to love it. For those who are an avid fan of Uniqlo and Djokovic, you know that he is one of the Global Brand Ambassador of the said retail store and for those unaware, now you know. ;)
