In December of 2004 MUJI CORSO BUENOS AIRES opened, becoming the first MUJI shop in Italy, where it faces Corso Buenos Aires in the eastern side of Milan, a shopping street with an over 200 year history that is representative of the city.
With over 1,200 items in a total floor space of 440 meters squared over two floors it boasted a scale worthy of Italy.
With this renovation, the store has expanded into another floor in the same building, more than doubling the floor space to 946 meters squared and carrying over 2,500 items.
At the same time as MUJI is starting the Found MUJI series for the first time in Italy, providing a full lineup of children’s clothes, and also operating a “Tree Raising Space” where kids can come in contract with trees.
MUJI has introduced multiple services for the first time in Italy, such as an experimental kiosk called AROMA LABO where customers are free to mix a number of essential oils and try making their own original scent as well as a service where customers can have sewn items they have purchased embroidered.
Along with the grand re-opening of MUJI CORSO BUENOS AIRES, a cable car wrapped in MUJI colors will be driving around the city of Milan until April 24th.
