Best New Retailer in North Bethesda

As Pike & Rose continues to assemble its eclectic retail lineup, Maryland’s first Uniqlo store is a recent addition that resonates with millennial shoppers. The Japanese retailer is known for its clean-lined aesthetic, offering wardrobe basics such as T-shirts, workout wear, tailored dresses and men’s chinos in an eye-popping rainbow of colors at a price point that makes it easy to stock up. But unlike the fast fashion that’s sold by some other retailers, Uniqlo’s goods are made to last—and to perform. The company is dedicated to constantly improving the softness of its fabrics, the sweat-wicking abilities of its sportswear and the heat-retaining properties of its winterwear. Color us impressed.
