Uniqlo’s flexibility is its go-to market strategy
Uniqlo has built its retail empire around the “Made for All” POV, meaning its products are such that anyone and everyone can wear them.
Now, being more sensitive to local economic and physical differences among its consumers in different regions and markets, Uniqlo revised its go-to-market strategy. Instead “everything fits everyone” thing, they are making larger-sized items for the US market and cheaper items for the economically disadvantages regions in China. This is quite a ballsy move for any retailer due to consequences that differences in sizing and quality can do to the brand, yet an incredibly intelligent one, as it makes the brand more resilient globally.
