Uniqlo to open store in London’s Coal Drops Yard 



As reported by Drapers earlier this year, Uniqlo will occupy a 12,000 sq ft unit, spread across three floors, in what has been dubbed as the most significant retail deal for the Coal Drops Yard development since launching in 2018.

The space was formerly occupied by Wolf & Badger.

The fashion retailer has been expanding its London footprint in recent months, unveiling its third store on Oxford Street in April.

Uniqlo UK chief operating officer Alessandro Dudech said: “We are excited to be opening in Coal Drops Yard, the bustling, family-friendly, design-led retail destination, offering us the opportunity to bring LifeWear to even more Londoners and visitors to the city.”

King’s Cross head of retail James Rayner said: “It is no secret that we’ve been working with Uniqlo for some time to find the right opportunity in the right location, so we’re delighted to finally be welcoming this much-loved high street brand to Coal Drops Yard this autumn.
