GU fashion store is opened by Fast Retailing. Co who is known as Asia’s largest clothier and Uniqlo operator. Why is GU fashion store different from traditional stores? When you arrive here to shopping, you can try apparel, then order what you want online. You can leave the store after making the order with emptied- hand because your orders will be delivered to your address later.
Another features of this store is customers can try to combine clothing on a virtual mannequin or create a digital avatar for them on store’s system.
