Sharing about the UNIQLO Vincom Ba Trieu, General Director and Chief Operating Officer UNIQLO Vietnam Osamu Ikezoe said: “Since we opened a store in the northern region in 2020, Hanoi has played an important role in UNIQLO's long-term development plan in Vietnam.”
He added after a period of operation, the Japanese retailer realized the demand in the capital, so it wishes to bring the most outstanding values of the LifeWear philosophy to become an indispensable part of the daily life of the capital's residents.
“The opening of three new stores, starting with UNIQLO Vincom Ba Trieu, aims to meet the needs in Hanoi, thereby boosting our presence in Vietnam,” he underlined.
The leader of the retailer said the UNIQLO Vincom Ba Trieu store, located in the most vibrant shopping districts of the capital, would attract a large number of domestic consumers and international tourists. The new store represents the lifestyle and the modern spirit of Hanoians while paying deep respect to the traditions and contemporary culture of the city.
“Through the opening, we hope that UNIQLO will continue to make positive contributions and build long-term relationships with the community here,” he said.

As part of the expansion plan in Hanoi and the northern region, two new UNIQLO stores will open this year in Vincom Tran Duy Hung and Vincom Royal City.
