Uniqlo has 51 stores in the U.S.
Lessons from Japan’s richest man.
Despite holding a virtually non-existent presence in North America, Uniqlo has turned itself into a leading billion dollar low-cost clothing brand. In an interview with Uniqlo’s founder, Tadashi Yanai, the entrepreneurial mastermind outlines his goals of reaching the $10 billion USD/year sales mark and his unwillingness to pigeon-hole his management philosophy as any particular style but rather one that must be continually adapted to ensure success and efficiency. Uniqlo’s popularity can be largely associated with their commitment to creating quality and stylish garments at low prices and creating pieces that can easily be worn in different situations and settings. The CNN interview can be seen both in text and streaming video.
