MUJI undergoes a brand-first refurbishment at Angel Central
MUJI, the Japanese clothing and homeware retailer, has refurbished its Angel Central store in London and introduced a temporary community market to champion local brands.
The revamped store is a first of its kind for MUJI in the UK.
Spanning 2,624 square feet, the store allows the brand to bring sustainability to the forefront with a focus on “recycle and repurpose” initiatives. The shop also features a ” brightened design” with added wooden feature walls, fixtures and display monitors.
The community market was held within the Angel Central Piazza to coincide with the relaunch. It offered a range of activities and workshops and included an array of creative brands such as Artbox London, FRYTH and Leiho.
David Brice, managing director at MUJI UK, said: “Our store at Angel Central is incredibly important to us. We trade so well here, and it’s a destination that supports its local community, so we knew our Angel Central store would be the perfect place to begin rolling out this refurbishment.
“We have a great relationship with the Islington community, and CBRE IM have worked collaboratively with us to support our re-fit and community market plans. We’re excited to see this store continue to thrive and make sustainable choices more accessible for consumers.”
The news follows the recent opening of the Birdies immersive crazy golf experience at Angel Central.
Ciara Daffy, asset manager at CBRE Investment Management, said: “MUJI has been a much-loved offer within Angel Central for years, and it’s testament to their performance here that they decided to invest in a new design concept. Angel Central has a strong approach towards sustainability initiatives, and the team works closely with local charities, so MUJI’s plans align perfectly with our overarching ethos.”
