I have been waiting for MUJI to open in NYC for a long time, I was so excited to find out that they were going to open two locations in the US, one in SOHO and the other at The New York Times Building. But to my surprise the MUJI SOHO store came in a storm, I’m counting down the days till November 16th! I’ll be shopping there frequently, be on the lookout for tons of updates!
