The minimalist Japanese retailer famed for its low-waste ethos and no-logo policy is gearing up to open its largest ever Aussie store this August. The label is ditching its current Chadstone Shopping Centre digs to move into an expanded 1700-square-metre space, located near the precinct's newly revamped Food Atrium.

But this new concept store will have a whole lot more to offer than just a whopping huge floor plan. Shoppers will be able to get their hands on an extended offering of Muji's signature bedding, clothing (men's, women's and kid's), skincare, storage bits and bobs, stationary and travel goods, as well as a line of household furniture not available in any other local store.

There'll also be an on-site embroidery service for jazzing up your just-bought threads and a self-serve coffee facility to fuel those lengthier shopping adventures (although no Muji Cafe, unfortunately). A 'Melbourne to Go' concept will showcase various things to do around town, curated by staff but also encouraging suggestions from shoppers. The store will also stock Muji's book range and new non-gendered garment capsule line, Muji Labo.

The new Muji embroidery station.

And as if that wasn't enough to keep you busy for a while, the new space will also play host to a dynamic workshop and exhibition space, dubbed Open Muji. Stay tuned for a program featuring everything from artist talks to craft sessions.

The Japanese brand kicked off its foray into Australia when it opened the original Chadstone store back in 2013. It now boasts five locations across Sydney, Melbourne and Canberra. But this will be its biggest one yet.

The new Muji Chadstone is slated to open late-August on the lower ground level of Chadstone Shopping Centre, Melbourne. We'll let you know when an opening date has been announced.
