Fans of Muji's minimalist homewares and consumer goods will be glad to know that the Japanese megastore isn't done with Sydney yet. With recent news of the newly opened Muji hotels in Japan and China, we were starting to feel a bit like their neglected middle child. But this week the north shore has scored its very own MUJI outpost.
A sister store to The Galeries on George Street, the newbie is Australia's first multi-level Muji, and the place is big, covering a whopping 884 square metres at Westfield Chatswood. It's stocked with all the usual homewares, along with men's, women's and children's apparel and accessories, skincare products, stationery, back-to-school/work necessities and travel goods. The brand's simple designs are also eco‐friendly with minimal packaging, so you really can't go wrong here.
The store opened on Wednesday, March 21, and is Muji's fourth Australian outpost. Here's hoping we finally get those flat-pack homes and tiny pre-fab huts that we've been waiting so very long for.
Muji Chatswood is now open at Westfield Chatswood. It's open 9.30am–6pm Monday to Wednesday and Friday, 9.30am–9pm Thursday, 9am–6pm Saturday and 10am–6pm Sunday. For more info, visit muji.com.
