A new clothing store is opening its first Connecticut location here in Trumbull this week, with a grand opening Friday Nov. 8.

UNIQLO, which started in Japan and has become popular in cities like New York for its style and inexpensive clothing, is opening at Westfield Trumbull Mall as a part of their larger retail expansion project for 10 stores across the east and west coasts.

The Connecticut location will open at Westfield Trumbull to the sound of traditional Japanese Taiko Drummers, that will perform on the opening Friday, and following Saturday and Sunday. Various promotions will be available to shoppers, including an invitation for customers to try the brands lauded “heat tech” product - UNIQLO will gift a “heat tech” top to each shopper that spends over $50.

The store is located on the mall’s upper level, near Lord & Taylor.
