The city's getting another Muji. Confirming earlier rumors, the minimalist Japanese chain has announced via press release that they are opening their fourth NYC store (after Soho, Midtown and JFK) at 1pm on Friday, November 28th at 16 West 19th Street. Additional details: "With 3,434 square feet of retail floor space, the store will offer over 1,450 household items and 350 apparel items." To celebrate their slow-but-steady city takeover, they have will be giving product away to the first two hundred customers that come to the store on the first three days it is open. Freebies, pictured above, include the amazing "New York In A Bag," a "New York handkerchief," and an Empire State building stamp. Try to contain yourselves.
