We’ve had a helluva UNIQLO roller coaster ride. Looks like the first D.C. proper location is finally happening!! A tipster sends the sweet words:
“it appears Uniqlo is coming to Union Station. They have numerous help wanted ads that were just posted late in the week for a new store opening there.”
My guess – 1st floor – old swatch store all the way back to the former cd store
And indeed – here it is in all it’s glory:
