The mystery surrounding Uniqlo's Boston area touchdown continues: With the Japanese retailer keeping mum on which locations it's scouting, the Boston Globe reports that its name has been scrubbed from a lease plan for the Mall at Chestnut Hill. The Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall developer that was also linked to a possible Uniqlo lease has kept quiet on the matter, too. However, Eileen McMaster (VP of of public relations for Uniqlo) shares that an official announcement on a fall expansion is expected in June of this year. [Boston Globe]
