Japanese design chain Muji to open first Toronto store

We're on a serious roll when it comes to international chain stores, Toronto. First, shoe discounter DSW took itself out of our dreams and into the GTA with two brand-new stores; now, another brand is set to knock itself off our wish list (and this one will make a way bigger impact on your place than just the shoe closet).

The Globe and Mail reports that Muji, that Japanese purveyor of all things functional and minimal, from clothing to housewares to gifts, is looking to set up shop near the Eaton Centre by mid-December. Two additional stores set to follow for the end of next year. The chain is a cult fave around the world (including in many U.S. cities) for their sleek yet affordable approach to everyday essentials that are sure to play nice with all your IKEA finds. (Meanwhile, as of press time, the wind still gently whispers "Uniqlo".)
