A year after we and others started reporting the Japan-based chain was looking for sites in Philadelphia, Uniqlo has named three store opening locations and dates: King of Prussia Mall on May 16; 1608 Chestnut St. in Center City (beating out the Gallery and other would-be sites), on Oct. 3; and Willow Grove Park Mall, also Oct. 3.

Uniqlo says it's the fourth-largest specialty retail chain in the world, after Zara, H&M and Gap.
