Where/How to buy Uniqlo clothing in Canada?

Last summer, I went on a short trip to NYC and while I was there, I went into Uniqlo and got some clothes, notably 2 polos and a t-shirt. The quality of those 3 basics was awesome for how much I was paying (was like $15-$20 for the polo, the t-shirt was like $7), better than H&M stuff. The XS (at least American XS, for whatever reason it fitted more like a small in any other brand; odd considering Uniqlo I thought was an Asian brand) polo fits me better than any of the other brand's polo, and their small t-shirt was another that fit me real well. I realize there's no stores in Toronto (or Canada for that matter) nor do they have an online store that ships worldwide. Is there anyway I can get their stuff without paying a bloated price? As far as I know, I won't be making another trip to NYC soon so going back there in the near future is out of the question.

The only way would be to travel to NYC or Vancouver. If not, then order online and use one of those border services for further shipping

I see...reading that thread that hdom posted...so to even order from the Uniqlo online store I need an American credit card. How abouts would I go to do that also? And using a border service, would CBI USA work? I've never used them myself but have heard good things about them. I live in the Niagara region during the school year so it be quite easy for me to make a quick visit there once or twice. I found this statement in their shipping thing...does this rule out CBI USA?
APO/FPO/P.O. BOX

At this time we are unable to ship to military addresses/P.O. boxes/some US territories including Guam, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
Also from that thread, suggested I get a friend from the US to ship it to me...problem is I don't have one there.

you can also use reship.com, it gives you a US shipping address that you ship it to, then when it arrives, they charge you shipping costs to canada.

Thanks for all the replies, seems like forwarding them is the only option at the moment for me :( . I am though considering somehow getting a US-eligible credit card and then getting it shipped to CBI USA...perhaps adding a secondary address to a Canadian credit card? Is it as easy as just calling the credit card company and putting CBI USA as the secondary address? Their website suggested as another option of getting a prepaid American credit card as an option. Also, I read the following on Uniqlo's website...is CBI USA any of these and will they not ship there?

What did you order (like cost and how many items) and how much was it prior and after using forwardit.us?

I definitely regret not buying more stuff from Uniqlo when I was in NYC as well. Doubt I'll be back for a few years.


If you're only looking for shirts/polos (and if they're vacuum sealed), I may be able to pick up a few things for you when I'm in Tokyo later this year. I'm a medium though (and I plan to buy a lot of stuff from Uniqlo, though that may change hah) so it'll really depend on my luggage capacity :P

Sure...sounds good, as long as both of us remember about it whenever you're going :) .
