Uniqlo SM North EDSA Pre-Opening: Are You Ready to Shop on Friday?

November 15, 2012

Guess where I shopped last night? Uniqlo SM North EDSA!

The store held a special pre-opening event for the media guests, friends, and bloggers after the awarding/meet-and-greet event for the winners of Uniqlo’s Ultimate Fashionista. I am sure you remember that the store was all covered with tarpaulins with entries from the Facebook Contest. A friend told me he saw my picture there. Oh, that’s nice of Uniqlo to include my picture, as I think I was the only one wearing a tube top when all the other contestants were covered with Fall/Winter Collection from Uniqlo. 

Speaking of Fall/Winter Collection.. that was what welcomed me when I entered the Uniqlo SM North EDSA store, accompanied with accommodating Uniqlo staff who were handing me shopping baskets.

Too bad there is no chance for me to wear Winter Clothes now that I am back in Manila. I was hoping the collection would be released earlier before my trip. Anyway, some nice stuff I was itching to buy..

Lovely dresses..

 Colored Pants are still on! Opening Sale Price at Php590 instead 
of Php990!

Oh hello there, Hello Kitty! 
I love the print but the style is blouse-y.. 

More of Winter Clothes
This one I bought! Took me and Helen forever to choose
the best color! Haha
One of the reasons I wish I were a guy..
Nice, discounted pants!
There are of course, stuff for the kids
yes, Winter Clothes included!

The store is about the same size as the Uniqlo Mall of Asia store. The same stuff are available, from colored pants, to basic tees, graphic tees, warmers, stockings (colored or lace), seamless undies and even plaid tops. I notice though that most of the stuff are for Fall/Winter which is good for those who are planning to go to Korea. You can buy lovely gloves too (Php590).

After a good two hours of shopping and hi’s and hello’s
with blogger friends and common faces I saw last night, 
time to hit the cashier’s area.. 
and look how accommodating they are..


By the way, if you have an SM Advantage Card, don’t forget to present to earn points.

Now, here are some pics..

 The Big Boss

The Uniqlo SM North EDSA store will be the 2nd Uniqlo Store in the Philippines. The first store was opened in SM Mall of Asia.

I am sure the second level of SM The Block will be crowded for the official opening of Uniqlo SM North EDSA on Friday, November 16, 2012. Store hours will be 10AM to 9PM on weekdays, and 10AM to 10PM on weekends. On Friday, the Uniqlo SM North EDSA will open as early as 8AM!
