Reservations to attend this weekend’s opening of Vancouver’s MUJI pop-up store at the Fairmont Pacific Rim Hotel have filled up quickly.
Ahead of the opening of two permanent stores in Metro Vancouver later this year, MUJI announced that it would be opening to the public pop-up store in downtown Vancouver at the end of this week.

Eager customers were clearly not too happy about the reservations filling up so quickly.
@Mujicanada incredibly disappointing experience and total waste of time even when it showed tickets available it wouldn’t let me register. 😡

@Mujicanada just wondering why the tickets are already all sold out?

The month-long pop-up store is tucked away in a small corner of the lobby of the Fairmont Pacific Rim Hotel, providing just a taste of what Vancouverites can expect from the full-fledged 10,000-square-foot stores that will open on Robson Street and Metropolis at Metrotown shopping centre at the end of this year.
