MUJI YOURSELF customization counter.

The first flagship MUJI 無印良品 store in Canada, and the largest outside of Asia, opens Saturday on Robson Street in Vancouver.

The 15,000 sq ft. MUJI store is located in the former Gap space on Robson, between Thurlow and Bute.

It carries more than 4,500 products, and offers several services not yet seen in Canadian MUJI stores including MUJI Labo, coffee bar, aroma counter, and MUJI YOURSELF — a customization service offering embroidery, stamps, gift wrapping and label printing.

The space has been transformed, with its high ceilings and atrium exposed, plus the additions of wood and lots of greenery, much of it for sale in the form of potted plants.

“The goal of the Robson Street store is to deepen our relationships with local communities while offering new services and products in a distinctive retail space,” says Toru Akita, president of MUJI Canada. “In addition, by creating a relaxing environment with coffee, books and plants, we hope to help customers to make better choices toward creating their own pleasant lifestyle.”

The store opens Saturday, December 2, 2017 at 10 a.m., at 1125 Robson St, Vancouver, V6E 1B5.
