MUJI Atrium to Close Temporarily for Flagship Store Completion



Toronto, October 18th, 2018 – Japanese retailer MUJI announces the temporary closing of its downtown Toronto store which will soon re-open as its first flagship store in Eastern Canada.

MUJI Atrium, which opened at Yonge and Dundas in downtown Toronto, was the first MUJI location in Canada in 2014. The store was moved to a temporary location in January 2018 to start renovations for the expansion. As of October 29th, 2018, the temporary location will be closed in order to complete the construction of the new flagship store.

While the first MUJI Atrium occupied 5,658 square feet of retail space, the flagship store will reach 19,110 square feet, becoming the largest MUJI store outside of Asia. The opening is planned for late fall 2018.

The new MUJI Atrium will offer a unique, interactive store environment where customers can find and experience products and services to help them create a pleasant, comfortable lifestyle. More than a retail store, it will be a place that fosters communication and connections between MUJI, customers, local communities, and society in general. Through this, the company hopes to contribute to the creation of new innovations and a better quality of life.

As a flagship store, MUJI Atrium will offer many products and services never seen before in Canada. Additional details regarding the store will be released at a later date.
