Uniqlo Faneuil Pop-Up Gets New Open Date

A model poses for a photo as she displays Uniqlo's Fall/Winter collection during its unveiling event in Tokyo May 14, 2014. Ask the head of research and design at Uniqlo what anyone could possibly need for sartorial comfort beyond heat-generating innerwear in winter and a breezy, cooling undershirt in summer and he'll tell you that Uniqlo, the Japanese casual-wear brand, is just getting started. Uniqlo's parent, Fast Retailing Co, has made its name as a maker of high-tech, functional and affordable clothing, beginning with 1,900 yen ($18.60) fleece jackets in the late 1990s, helping founder and CEO Tadashi Yanai become one of Japan's richest men.

See you in July.

The open date for Uniqlo’s Faneuil Hall pop-up just got pushed a bit further into summer. Citing building difficulties, the Japanese mega retailer will be temporarily stalling their proposed Boston takeover, moving their downtown pop-up open date from June 27 to July 22.

Uniqlo will still work with the Red Sox Foundation to host a series of events to benefit the Scholars program and plans to host 250 of the students for a “back-to-school shopping spree” when the doors finally open.

The Faneuil pop-up, when it does open, will be in the former home of Kingfish Hall in the South Market building.

The casualwear chain, owned by Fast Retailing Co., announced in May their plans to open six permanent Boston area locations — including a permanent Quincy Market space — by Spring 2015.

We’ve reached out to Uniqlo for further comment and will update when available.
