CityMash.com - MUJI is taking Vancouver by storm! The popular Japanese retailer, known for their simple and clean approach to houseware, clothing, food and furniture, has just announced the opening of two MUJI stores in Vancouver in 2017. This news comes just days before MUJI’s pop-up shop at the Fairmont Pacific Rim opens. The pop-up shop is expected to be so popular that MUJI has instigated a reservation system so shoppers can enjoy their MUJI experience without the hassle of waiting in long lines.
If you’re not able to make it to the reservation-only MUJI pop-up, you won’t have to wait too much longer to feed your MUJI obsession. MUJI Canada will be opening two locations in Vancouver in 2017. Both locations will be open before December 2017, says MUJI Canada President, Toru Akita.
The first location, the largest MUJI store in Canada at 10,000 square feet, will live downtown on Robson Street. The second location, slightly smaller at 8,000 square feet, will open at Metropolis at Metrotown in Burnaby. The MUJI stores will house all the same goods that MUJI fans know and love including some special services and products that haven’t been brought to Canada yet.
MUJI has been looking at opening a store in Vancouver since 2009 but have struggled to find the right location. These two new stores in 2017 will be the 4th and 5th MUJI locations in Canada. The first three stores are in the Toronto area.
How excited are you for the permanent MUJI locations coming to Vancouver? If you can’t wait and want to check out the MUJI pop-up, make sure you have a reservation!
