So this, friends, is MUJI Midtown, at 620 Eighth Avenue in the New York Times building. By the numbers, we're talking about 4,350 square feet of retail, with, per spokespeople, over 1,750 household items and 420 apparel items on offer. This MUJI is the retailer's second location in the States—second in NY, too—and largest. Today is debut day, at 12 noon. If you're curious and/or need a refresher, Mujirushi Ryohin, the name in Japanese from which MUJI was originally derived, translates as “no-brand quality goods”.
