Muji Expands into Switzerland – First store at Glattzentrum

The Muji retail chain, which is worth billions, is opening its first branch in Zurich next autumn.

The retail chain has announced that it will open its first store at Glattzentrum in Zurich. In 1980, Muji was launched as the private label of the Japanese Seibu department store chain.

Three years later, the first branch was opened in Tokyo, and, in 1990, the company became completely independent of the Seibu Group. One year later, the company expanded into Europe, where the first store was opened in London.

Muji now has approximately 800 stores in over 25 countries and generates an average annual turnover of 3.5 billion euros. The name Muji is the short form of Mujirushi Ryohin, which translates to: «No brand, good products».
