Japanese lifestyle retailer MUJI has opened its fourth location in Metro Vancouver.
Located inside Surrey’s Guildford Town Centre, the new location is the brand’s fourth in the Metro Vancouver area. With a retail space of 15,800 sq ft over two floors, it’s the largest location in Metro Vancouver and the second-largest store in Canada.
In comparison, MUJI’s flagship store, located in downtown Vancouver is 14,500 sq ft in size; the largest store in Canada, which is located in downtown Toronto, is 19,110 sq ft.
The new location will stock the brand’s full collection of products with over 4,000 items, including stationery, household goods, storage products, and apparel.

The Surrey location will also offer unique personalization and advising services, such as a custom fragrance bar, embroidery and custom stationery, complimentary wrapping, and interior design and style advisors.
The company notes that MUJI Guildford Town Centre is also the first location in Western Canada to offer customized fabric printing. These custom services, however, will not be available until a later date when close contact between visitors and staff is deemed safe.
The store has also been reconfigured to allow additional physical distancing between customers and employees. Shoppers will be provided with hand sanitizer and are encouraged to wear face masks while inside. A greeter will also manage the entrance to the store and ensure a reduced capacity.
