We have good news for Seattle’s downtown retail scene: a new Uniqlo store is opening in downtown Seattle this Friday, November 18. The Uniqlo store’s grand opening will have lots of goodies available for Seattle shoppers, so this is an event you won’t want to miss this weekend.
Read on for all the details!
Earlier this spring the popular Japanese clothing store Uniqlo applied for permits to take over the old Macy’s space. The Macy’s department store in the historic Bon Marche building closed over two years ago in February 2020. The retail space has remained vacant ever since.

Now, Uniqlo’s downtown Seattle store is set to open this week! Uniqlo’s grand opening kicks off this Friday at 9:30 a.m. at the store’s downtown location: 300 Pine Street. The doors open at 10:00 a.m. but there will be a few festivities first.
Here are some of the special offers that you can enjoy if you visit Seattle’s Uniqlo store during the grand opening weekend:
- Free gift: the first 200 people in line on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday will receive a free Uniqlo bag with special surprises.
- Free gift with purchase: a Uniqlo holiday sock gift box with purchase of 4 color socks.
- Exclusive access: Seattleites will get to shop the Spy Family UT collection a week before it arrives in other stores.
- Available for purchase: two Seattle tees designed by artist Lauren Martin, available only at this store for a limited time.
- Special discounts: on brand favorites like Ultra Light Down, fluffy fleece, and HEATTECH for a limited time.
There will also be a live Taiko Drum performance during the grand opening on Friday at 9:30 a.m. Between the drum performance and the exciting in-store offers, it’s sure to be a lively morning in downtown Seattle.
As for the store’s offerings in general, most Seattleites will probably find some valuable wardrobe additions while shopping at the Uniqlo store in downtown Seattle. The brand says the new Seattle store will be stocked with “the full lineup of LifeWear—simple, high-quality, thoughtfully made clothing—for men, women, and kids with a practical sense of beauty.”
Uniqlo is known for its affordable clothing that includes workwear, loungewear, and everyday basics. Their use of modern technology to add a functional twist to clothing, such as their Wearable Sunscreen and HEATTECH collections, makes Uniqlo a particularly good match for outdoorsy Seattleites.
Prior to the Uniqlo store opening in downtown Seattle, the closest Uniqlo stores were located in Bellevue and Tukwila. The opening of such a popular store in Seattle’s downtown may help the area return to its pre-pandemic vibrancy. After two years of the Macy’s building standing vacant, the news of the new Uniqlo store is very welcome.
Make sure to check out their grand opening this weekend to snag those free gifts and special deals! You can get more details about the Pine Street opening on the Uniqlo website.
