It's Muji Midtown's first day today, and as such, we've got a Racked correspondent on the scene. The atmosphere in the store: "a kind of hushed reverence;" the crowd seems mostly comprised of Muji staffers. We're hearing that they've opened the doors ten minutes early to the public, which means that you should head over there now to get your free gift bag.
Update: "At the stroke of noon, from out of nowhere, about 40 people arrive. Store now swamped. Free gift bags being snapped up furiously."
