Last week, we reported that Japanese no-frills home goods and clothing chain Muji was coming to Toronto in time for the holiday season, and a thousand design nerds immediately began preparing to make over their homes in a million shades of tan. Now, Retail Insider reports, the company has chosen the location for its first downtown store - the Atrium on Bay, home of Toronto's only downtown Red Lobster and that LCBO near Dundas Square.
What the Atrium lacks in retail cachet, it makes up for in location and available floor space. It's not known exactly which spot in the complex they'll occupy yet, but Retail Insider notes that they've got options. A large space is already open on the basement floor, and there's a new vacancy in the former Guess store on Yonge St. (though a giant Hallowe'en store is set to take over that space in the coming weeks, meaning Muji would have to wait to move in until after trick-or-treat season).
