UNIQLO PLANNING TO USE VENDING MACHINES TO SELL CLOTHES

When it comes to Vending machines, you typically are able to get a soda, snacks and even coffee. Now you’re going to be able to purchase clothes from Uniqlo using a vending machine.  According to a report in The Wall Street Journal, sales have been slow for the Japanese retailer in the U.S. and they are hoping that these new machines will help to boost sales. “We’re trying to understand where we can be more successful without making a big commitment,” said Marisol Tamaro, Uniqlo’s U.S. marketing chief. Tamaro describes the vending machines a “learning lab.” Uniqlo plans to roll out 10 machines this month at airports and malls in major cities like New York, L.A. and Houston.
