A Look Inside Muji, Now Open On Cooper Square

Muji, the Japanese version of IKEA, opened its Cooper Square store today.

As mentioned when we broke news of the location in February, it’s the brand’s fifth in New York. Yuka Sakamoto, a P.R. and marketing manager who was at the bilevel store when we dropped by today, said the clothing, housewares, stationary and furnishings brand was eager to establish a presence in the East Village because “there are so many interior design companies, there are students — a lot of people who might be interested in our brand.”

Store hours are 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday and noon to 6 p.m. on Sunday.

Muji, 52 Cooper Square (between East 6th and 7th Streets), (212) 358-8963
