Hello architectural plans!! And allow me to once again thank the Gods for such zoom technology on a $200 camera. Last month we broke the news that UNIQLO was hiring for a Union Station location. However, we had been burned in the past with similar job listing so reservations remained. Not anymore. This was at the end of a 15.1 mile walkabout so I thought maybe I was hallucinating – but no – that logo is too distinct even upside down:

So rejoice fellow UNIQLO fans – rejoice for real!! Still a ways to go of course:

But it is indeed the spot I figured last month, the old swatch store all the way back to the former cd store on the main floor. STAY TUNED.

It’s not yet confirming the Union Station location but I’ll take it!! Washington Business Journal reports:

“The retailer has signed a lease to do a temporary location at 1090 F St. NW in Penn Quarter, which was formerly home to an American Apparel store.”

STAY TUNED for the pop up’s opening date and more on Union Station. (Baruch Ha’shem)

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:

Thanks to a reader for sending from WKRG:

While Uniqlo coming to DC proper may still be wishful thinking – CityPaper got confirmation from the Capitol Crossing developers that Mario Batali’s Eataly is “definitively happening…no earlier than 2017” according to Property Group Partners. This is part of the huge Capital Crossing Development which you can read about here.

So I guess the bet is, who will come first Uniqlo or Eataly?

Thanks to a reader for passing on from reddit. A user noted that if you type Uniqlo into google it comes up as CityCenterDC (825 10th St, NW) – see screenshot above I took a few minutes ago. Almost exactly a year ago we thought craigslist had confirmed uniqlo when an ad for “UNIQLO Manager Candidate Program – Retail Sales – new” popped up for Washington, DC. Yes, yes, not everyone likes their clothing. Noted. But for those who do – this is one more reason to get excited! Though it still may be worth taking with a grain of a salt as their website makes no mention of a Washington DC expansion:

“Our clothes are functional, designed with innovative features and available in a wide range of colors and styles. Our designers are artistic apparel engineers, dedicated to finding elegant solutions to common garment dilemmas. We now operate more than 1,400 stores in 16 countries worldwide. This fall we will open 18 new stores in the US, in addition to the already 21 in the Northeast and the San Francisco Bay Area. We will be expanding into new markets including Boston, Los Angeles and Philadelphia metro areas.”

UPDATE: CityCenter Rep says they aren’t coming. According to OP, Uniqlo says it’s news to them so they can’t confirm or deny.
