While there is only a handful of Uniqlo stores on both the east and west coasts—20 of them, to be exact—the Japanese fast-fashion label's stateside fanbase is widespread. Luckily, the chain is opening five new stores this summer, and has just announced plans to expand its presence in new cities in the coming months.

Uniqlo says it will open six stores in the greater Boston area: Four of the new locations will open this summer and fall, and a pop-up shop and a flagship will follow in summer 2015.  In addition, the Philadelphia area will get two stores in the fall, and the nearby town King of Prussia will open its first Uniqlo on May 16.

Various cities in Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, and both northern and southern California are slated to see Uniqlo openings throughout the late summer and fall this year as well, with more locations (and markets) to come. If you don't have a Uniqlo near you, it looks like you might not be waiting much longer to get your fix.
