Muji makes moves in Mississauga
Torontonians flipped out when the insanely popular Japanese retailer Muji landed at Yonge and Dundas last year. Now, according to Retail Insider, the chain is opening its second Toronto store in just a few months. The new location—in Mississauga’s Square One—is great news for shoppers west of the 427, who will now be able to get their hands on the brand’s trend-defying products without making the trek downtown. (For anyone who isn’t familiar with Muji, it sells functional apparel, accessories, bedding, toiletries, apothecary, furniture, kitchenware and school supplies—and basically everything else you never knew you needed, like this.) More good news: the new location will be almost 1,000 square feet larger than the Yonge and Dundas store, with additional space for children’s clothing, food items and a substantially larger furniture section (and maybe even its brand-new line of monochromatic kettles and rice cookers).
