Muji Brings Plain and Simple Design To Toronto

Taking a minimalist approach with its products, Japanese retailer Muji will be coming to Toronto according to the Globe and Mail. And I for one am excited, not only because I love shopping for accessories, but the brand takes a unique and refreshing approach to how consumers buy lifestyle goods.

If you’re not familiar with Muji, prices are affordable (but don’t be expecting Target-esque price points). They can afford to keep their costs low as they spend nothing on advertising, and products are simple in terms of their design – very simple! It’s the store for anti-label design lovers who don’t want to shop at IKEA.

They allow us a taste of runway, without the Haute Couture price tag.

The store is set to open near Toronto Eaton Centre by mid-December, perfect timing to woo stock-stuffer hungry Toronto shoppers with products ranging from simple stationary, furniture and storage to kitchen gadgets and gifts galore, and everything in between.

Here are a few of my favourite things I hope to get my hands on; things I don’t need but find adorable:

And, that’s not all for Asian retailers, Uniqlo could be coming in 2016, the Globe also reported.
