Muji to open largest Hong Kong flagship store
Despite struggling with suspended operations and inventory problems during the Covid-19 pandemic, Japanese home-and lifestyle-goods retailer Muji is set to open its 21st store in Hong Kong later this month.
Taking over the former Uny-owned Piago department store space in Telford Plaza, the new flagship will span 24,000sqft with all ranges including home, electronics, apparel, cosmetics and food.
The Telford Muji flagship will largely focus on food, expanding its range with packaged goods, groceries, fresh baked goods and a new coffee and tea bar in addition to its existing cafe and Meal Muji restaurant.
Muji is also expected to make its debut in Vietnam later this year.
In May, Muji Japan launched a store on Amazon, seeking to mitigate the impact of its 280 stores in the market being forced to close due to Covid-19. That marked the first time Ryohin Keikaku has sold Muji products via an online platform outside its own e-commerce store.
