Uniqlo strengthen its bonds with art in Barcelona. The Japanese retailer, owned by Fast Retailing, has renewed its agreement with the Contemporary Art Museum in Barcelona (Macba) for five more years.

Uniqlo has stated that October 17 is the day of its debut in the Spanish capital, at the same time it prepares a new opening in the country with its second store in Barcelona.
