Popular Japanese fashion retailer Uniqlo has confirmed their second Lower Mainland location will open at Guildford Town Centre in Surrey.

Uniqlo recently opened a 20,000 sq ft. store at Metropolis at Metrotown, and many expected a downtown Vancouver store — possibly on Granville Street — would be the next location to be announced.

However, Uniqlo announced on their Facebook page Wednesday that the location at Guildford Town Centre would open in Spring 2018.
