MUJI Reveals Ambitious Canadian Expansion Plans (Q&A)
Minimalist Japanese retailer MUJI will be opening its third Toronto-area store next month, at Toronto’s Yorkdale Shopping Centre. The store will be the brand’s largest and most comprehensive Canadian location to date, and one of a number to open in Canada over the next several years. The company answered one question that it never has to date — how many stores it plans to operate in the Canadian market.
The 6,375 square foot Yorkdale MUJI store is set to open on Thursday, October 18, in the mall’s newest expansion wing anchored by a new 199,000 square foot Nordstrom store (opening on October 21). Muji will be located next to another Japanese retailer, Uniqlo, opening on October 20.
