Muji in Berlin

Update: Muji will be opening a branch in Berlin in early 2008: more details.

Muji sales exhibition, Q110 One brand sadly lacking from Berlin's wide range of shops is the Japanese "no name" lifestyle brand Muji. Although they've had shops in London and Paris for a few years, and opened the first German store in Düsseldorf in November 2005, their eastwards expansion has not yet reached Berlin. They're testing the market though: the Deutsche Bank's "show branch" at Friedrichstrasse 180 (U-Bahn: Stadtmitte) is hosting a temporary sales exhibition until November 4 featuring over 500 items.

popped in yesterday going past and yes, it is very Muji. xpensive though! I think they take the japanese price in Yen, double it and divide by 100 to get the euro price (whereas at the normal exchange rate e.g. a 69 yen pen would cost about €0.50, Muji sell it for about €1.25).

Still cheaper than going to Japan though :). Hope they open a permanent store in Berlin, that would be cool.
