Japanese lifestyle brand MUJI has a hot lineup of events leading up to the big grand opening in Santa Monica in June.
The grand opening* is slated for Friday, June 20 at 10 a.m. in Santa Monica.
To celebrate, MUJI will host a Pre-Opening Friends & Family Shop First event on Thursday, June 19th. The Pre-Opening Shopping Night event will give a glimpse at the new main street space and the first 50 shoppers to attend will recieve a complimentary notebook and "my-bag" tote.

"MUJI offers products that customers often rely on everyday, so we feel it's important for our stores to be nearby to serve their daily needs. We hope to continue providing stores in customers neighborhoods or, that is, in places 'close to their lives,' said Asako Shimazaki, President of MUJI USA LIMITED.
"MUJI sees Santa Monica as a place that has many sides--nature,city, refinement, culture--and sees the people there as having lifestyles rich with experience. This is the kind of place where MUJI has the most to offer," Ms. Shimazaki added.
