Japanese lifestyle retailer, Muji, has confirmed it will open its first store in Sydney.
This will be the third Australian store for Muji, adding to its two locations at Chadstone shopping centre and Emporium in Melbourne.
Inside Retail understands the store will be located at The Galeries shopping centre in Sydney’s CBD, replacing the former Freedom site, and will open by May.
Dubbed “Japan’s answer to Ikea”, Muji stocks a range of categories from men’s, women’s, and children’s apparel and accessories; furniture and homewares; skincare products; stationery; and travel goods.
The retailer is owned by Tokyo-based company, Ryohin Keikaku, and has more than 600 stores, including more than 200 international stores in Britain, France, the US, China, Taiwan, Thailand, Germany, Sweden, and Italy.
Muji first launched in 1980 with a range of nine household products and 31 foods. Today, it sells more than 5000 products in Japan.
