Uniqlo Opening Cutting-Edge Store in Harajuku

Apparel giant Fast Retailing is opening a high-tech Uniqlo outlet in Tokyo’s trendy Harajuku area on Friday, June 5. Customers can choose clothing using a special app installed on these tablets on the wall.

Uniqlo developed the app, which recommends ideas for coordinating outfits based on client preference. When shoppers send photos of clothes they are looking for, the app can help them find items similar to the image. Shopping using tablets can enable people to avoid crowded and close-contact settings. The store’s opening was delayed due to the effects of the novel coronavirus pandemic.
