The second Southern California store of the Japanese lifestyle brand MUJI will open in Santa Monica on Friday, June 28, it was formally announced last week. The store’s doors will officially open at 10 a.m. that day, though a series of pre-opening festivities begins as early as May 28.
MUJI Santa Monica will be located at 2936 Main Street, in between Kinney Street and Pier Avenue. Store hours will be 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Sunday.
According to the a statement issued by MUJI, the story will be about 6,300 square feet in size and offer “a diverse but carefully edited product range including apparel, kitchenware, tableware, furniture, interior and storage accessories, stationary, skincare, bags and suitcases – a one-stop shop where customers can pop in for a t-shirt or notebook, sauté pan or bed frame.”
On May 28, MUJI will host an open-to-the-public talk at Venice Arts and feature the company’s president talk about the store’s design.
“MUJI” is short for Mujirushi Ryohin, which, according to the company, means “no-brand quality goods” in Japanese. The first MUJI store to open in the United States was in 2007, when the Japanese store expanded into New York City.
