Uniqlo closing Denver store on 16th Street Mall

Japanese clothing retailer Uniqlo will shut down its Denver location on the 16th Street Mall later this month, folding up shop less than five years after a splashy debut in the Mile High City.

Uniqlo held a traffic-stopping fashion show downtown in 2016 before welcoming customers into its location inside the Denver Pavilions that October. The hip brand, known for producing high-quality basic garments, took over the anchor space previously occupied by a Barnes & Noble bookstore.

When it opened it was the company’s second U.S. location outside the coasts, joining a store in Chicago.

As of Monday morning, the store’s website lists its last day in business as Aug. 15.

No reason for the impending closure is given but the site reads, “We would like to thank you for your patronage and value your continued business.”

Uniqlo has more than 50 U.S. locations listed on its website. Denver is apparently not alone when it comes to closures. Stores in San Francisco, Washington, D.C., Peabody, Mass., Elizabeth, N.J., and on West 34th Street in New York City are all listed as permanently closed.
