Muji opening its First Canadian Flagship Store in Downtown Vancouver on December 2
Japanese retailer MUJI announces the opening of its first Canadian flagship store, on Vancouver’s Robson Street, on December 2nd.
With 14,507 square feet of retail space and more than 4,500 products, this will be MUJI’s largest store outside of Asia. The location will not only carry MUJI Canada’s full range of merchandise including household goods, apparel and food, but it will also feature a brand-new store concept and many products and services never seen before in Canada. A few of these novelties are:
MUJI Labo began as a special project in 2005 to explore basic concepts in apparel from a free and creative approach. “Labo” stands for laboratory, an appropriate name as the purpose of the line is to experiment with new styles, materials and manufacturing processes. What MUJI Labo learns through product development eventually becomes standard apparel in MUJI stores, reflecting practical design and conscientious materials that consider both the producer and the environment. MUJI Labo collection is only available in select MUJI flagship stores around the world.
MUJI Coffee Counter
MUJI Canada partnered with Ethical Bean Coffee, a leading supplier of 100% fairtrade certified, organic coffee. Based in Vancouver, Ethical Bean is committed to social responsibility, global awareness, and environmental accountability, while constantly seeking new ways to make their coffee both just and better. The coffee counter at MUJI Robson Street will serve simple and affordable coffee by the cup.
MUJI YOURSELF is a customization service including embroidery, stamps, gift wrapping and label printing. While stamps, embroidery and gift wrapping are already available in select Canadian stores, the Robson Street location will offer label printing for the first time. A vast selection of labels and personalization options will allow customers to customize various MUJI products such as stationery, storage, furniture, etc.
The Aroma Bar will allow customers to create a customized fragrance blend by choosing from more than 40 essential oils. In addition to regular MUJI essential oils, customers will have many more options to further personalize their home with unique scents.
