The company, renowned for high-quality, good-value basics, will open the Barcelona flagship store on Paseo de Gracia.

Barcelona was chosen after ‘months’ tossing up between the Catalan capital and Madrid.

Uniqlo is owned by mega group Fast Retailing, the world’s fourth largest clothing group after Inditex, H&M and Gap.
