Japanese retail chain, Uniqlo, will open its very first store in Russia next month with the outlet located at Moscow's Atrium shopping centre.
A statement from the Japanese company says: "At Uniqlo Atrium we will offer our items such as 'UJ'- jeans [the] 'UT' - T-shirt brand and [the] 'Leggings Collection.'
"The opening of our first Russian store will be even more exciting with the Uniqlo collection created with fashion designer Ms. Jil Sander also on sale."
"We are sure the collection, so well received by customers the world over in Paris, London, New York and Tokyo, will also captivate our new customers in Russia."
Considering that Uniqlo is doing the opposite of what many fashion brands are doing now, which is to pull out of Japan, its pretty obvious that many people in this economy are choosing to buy more affordable clothes these days.
