“The highway store format brings convenience to the community and serves as a perfect one-stop destination and is carefully designed to ensure enough space and accessibility for all,” added Sei.

Speaking about the store Karan Dhillon, principal of the Dhillon Group and owner/developer of the project which houses the store said, “It is a pleasure to have Uniqlo, the world’s leading retail brand setting up their first highway store in India at our development ‘Dhillon Plaza’ and offer to our customers a truly global retail experience. The brand has made a mark in the Indian retail landscape in the last few years of its launch and we are confident that the response at Dhillon Plaza Zirakpur will be positive, where customers find value for money.”

The highway format has played a crucial role in the brand’s growth in Japan as well as other places like Taiwan, Korea and Southeast Asia.
