Japanese global apparel retailer UNIQLO welcomed the community of Santa Rosa, Laguna to its newly opened roadside store in Nuvali last November 2022. Their new store features the first ever Green Park by Ayala, in partnership with UNIQLO Sustainability.
The store is a standalone 1,418 sq. m. building that carries a wide selection of LifeWear staples for men, women, kids, and babies. It offers a convenient and exciting shopping experience for customers with over 300 parking slots, a special kids’ play corner, and eleven fitting rooms, including one specially fitted for persons with disabilities (PWDs).
The Power of Clothing
The UNIQLO Nuvali Roadside Store highlights the retailer’s sustainability mission. The store features a special corner that shares how UNIQLO channels their initiatives to help our planet, people, and society.
They can also drop off their pre-loved UNIQLO pieces here via the Re.UNIQLO box, where the retailer gives new life to old LifeWear pieces through reusing and upcycling. The sustainability corner also proudly displays upcycled furniture made from roped plastics and old UNIQLO denim scraps by JunkNot.
Outside the store, customers can enjoy and appreciate nature, and be educated about UNIQLO’s efforts at the Green Park that was made possible through the partnership with Ayala and UNIQLO Sustainability.
The space has a bicycle rack to promote a sustainable mode of transportation, a kids’ active zone, and a pedal power charging station for the community to experience and enjoy.
Paint that Cleans the Air
Aligned with the brand’s dedication to sustainability, the new roadside store’s exteriors were also painted using BOYSEN KNOxOUT. It’s the first air purifying paint in the world with CristalACTiV™ photocatalytic technology. The paint uses light energy to break down noxious air pollutants and coverts them into harmless substances.
Any substrate coated with BOYSEN KNOxOUT becomes an active air-purifying surface that helps protect people from harmful gases. Its photocatalytic property also provides KNOxOUT paint with self-cleaning, antibacterial, and de-odorizing properties.
This UNIQLO branch also features a mural painted by local artist AG Saño who has also used BOYSEN KNOxOUT for other similar initiatives. Greeting customers after a day of shopping, his mural conveys UNIQLO’s campaign about caring for the environment. Aside from local partnerships and projects, BOYSEN KNOxOUT has also been utilized in several public sustainability and green efforts.
