Soon you'll be able to shop for cold-weather basics during your daily commute. This Friday, October 11, Uniqlo will launch a pop-up store in the Union Square subway station. The shop—which will stay open through Christmas—will be located at the east end of the station, directly across from the 4, 5 and 6 lines (enter next to the Food Emporium on 14th Street).
Though the pop-up will be teensy compared with its colossal 89,000-square-foot Fifth Avenue flagship, it'll be easily recognizable, with white walls and candy-colored items stacked ceiling-high. Offerings will focus on the Ultra Light Down, fleece and HEATTECH lines, including compact puffer jackets, and parkas for men and women ($49.90–$69.90). Bonus: Every purchase comes with a free $5 MetroCard.
The popular Japanese retailer's seasonal pop-up is happening in conjunction with the brand's outer-borough expansion: On October 18, a Staten Island outpost will open, followed by the store's very first Brooklyn location on October 25 in the Atlantic Terminal shopping center.
