Local retailers may bake in Uniqlo's glow

Struggling retailers will quake at the imminent arrival of Japanese fast-fashion behemoth Uniqlo. They'll need to adapt to survive.

The impending arrival of Japan’s largest fashion retailer Uniqlo on Australian shores is the latest signal to local retailers that there’s no escaping the giant tidal wave of global disruption threatening their bottom lines.

With 1200 stores in 14 markets worldwide and a mission to become the number one apparel brand in the world, the Japanese monolith follows Zara, Topshop and H&M as the latest big global fashion brand to storm the local market.
