The store would mark the cut-price brand’s entry into the South Asia region, Asia’s top apparel retailer said.

Asia has become a major growth driver for Uniqlo as its affordable clothing lines, including breezy AIRism innerwear and lightweight down jackets, grow in popularity in China and Southeast Asia.
