Uniqlo Opens Airport Vending Machines With the Stuff You Forgot to Pack
In the frenzy of packing for your next vacation, chances are you might forget an important item. But have no fear: Uniqlo has you covered.
The Japanese retail chain, known for its lightweight yet powerful Heattech cold weather gear, is bringing super convenient vending machines to airports across the U.S.
The first Uniqlo To Go machine opened on August 2 at Oakland International Airport in California. According to Quartz, nine more machines are planned to go live at both airports and shopping malls nationwide, including the Hollywood & Highland Center in Los Angeles (August 10), Houston Airport (August 17), and Queens Center in New York City (August 22).
Machines will carry various styles and colors of items for both women and men, and will change stock depending on the season and local customer needs. Airport machines are expected to carry the brand’s popular Heattech thermals, which is perfect for those long, cold flights.
According to The Wall Street Journal, the company hopes the machines will be a good way to introduce their brand to a new audience.
