Clothing brand Uniqlo is launching about a dozen vending machines to sell their clothes in NY & Texas.  Mostly located in various airports and high traffic locations, they are not really trying to sell the clothes in high volume and make a big profit, instead opting to think of these machines as advertising that may be profitable.

The brand failed to catch on in the suburbs the same way it has in urban markets so they are not interested in expanding into full retail stores instead opting for popup stores and vending machines to promote their website.
