Eh, probably not. Just wait a few more weeks and it will be dead like any other mall store. I may be working DT on Friday, I'll update you

I went yesterday night (Wednesday) at about 8 and they made people lineup (approximately 20 people, not much) still even though there seemed to be enough room for everyone that was waiting in line to get in. I asked why, they said simply because of the high amount of traffic and needing to follow fire code. I waited for only about 5 minutes and then they let all of us in line just get in. The line to pay wasn't bad for upstairs, but definitely a longer line for the downstairs cashiers.

Pricing seems alright, but I'm sad they don't have ANY short-sleeve polos. Yes, I realize it's fall now but still, disappointed since the polos I have from them previously are my favourite and the best fitting ones I own. I would have thought they'd still carry it during this season or all year around since it's a simple basic item but I guess not. The NYC store has like an entire wall dedicated to polos with all colours though of course I realize this isn't the same store. Also, if anyone is into their Disney t-shirts, they're also unavailable right now. One cashier said the rumour is that they'll bring both of those things here in March. Ended up only getting a simple v-neck tee but will go back in a couple weeks perhaps to get some more stuff like chinos.

I'm glad they'll have a store further north opening in just over 2 weeks at Yorkdale so it will be easier for me to get to than having to go all the way downtown. However, it'll be smaller than the Eaton Centre location and I absolutely hate the traffic (in the mall and its surrounding areas) and parking at Yorkdale.

Like you I'm eagerly waiting for the Yorkdale Uniqlo opening. I don't believe the crowd will be bad at Yorkdale. It's a totally different demographic and my sizes (xs/s) won't sell out as fast as the Eaton centre one. I bought a bunch on Saturday then went back on monday for more colours and many seemed sold out. Let's just say Uniqlo better make sure they have enough larger sizes for Yorkdale shoppers.

You probably can find better selection and sizes on their online store instead !
They don't have an online store for Canadians?

i thought the lineup outside the store was for like free food or something, but when i tried to walk around to go into the store i realized that it was to go inside.

i went home, it can't be that serious

The Yorkdale store is opening on Oct.18. I'd think that the online store will follow the opening so as to meet the pent-up Canadian shoppers' demands to buy online.

This would be great news if that happens.

I have yet to drop by the store at Eaton's Center, so I have no clue if there are good deals like people say they have.

From the Twitter account:

First 300 customers who line up at our @YorkdaleStyle opening on Oct. 20 will receive a special limited edition tote bag. #UNIQLOCanada
That is 200 fewer than the Eaton Centre store opening. Snooze, you lose out on the tote!

Not sure why the date is Oct. 20 for the opening, rather the Oct.18 date I had initially posted. Checking Yorkdale's site (Nordstrom is opening around the same time):

The mall's Facebook page says Oct. 20. https://www.facebook.com/Yorkdale

It's highly variable. When I got to the mall last Saturday the entire area in front of the store was packed with people, so the gf and I went to Nordstrom's to browse around. When we came out about half an hour later there was nobody at all. We just walked right into the store like normal without waiting. When we left Uniqlo the line was back though.

I've never been to Asia, but the prices are comparable to the NYC store adjusted for the Canadian dollar. For index items, a down vest is $50 and a basic packaged white T-shirt is $10.
Could HAVE, not could OF. What does 'could of' even mean?
