An anonymous source forwarded us a lease plan, solving the mystery of the location of minimalist Japanese retailer Muji’s first Canadian location. Measuring almost 4,400 square feet, Muji will be smaller than we initially expected, compared to some of its American stores.
We were initially alerted to Muji opening at Toronto’s Atrium on Bay by Urban Toronto‘s ACT7, who forwarded us a City of Toronto Building Status Application indicating that Muji will locate in space C-03 of the retail complex.
We weren’t sure which space C-03 was, exactly, until we were provided a lease plan indicating that the 4,373 square foot space is the former location of Black’s Photography, with street frontage on Dundas Street West, near Yonge Street. According to Muji’s Facebook page, the store is set to open on November 29, 2014.
