Muji's pop-up gives Portlanders a sneak peek at what's to come (Photos)

While the 11,000-square-foot Muji store in the old Meier & Frank Building won't open for another couple of months, the Japanese retailer has opened a nearby pop-up shop to give Portlanders a preview of what's on the way.

"The pop-up store is an introduction for people who don't know Muji very well," said Ichigo Sugiura, manager of the Muji marketing department. "It's a great way to express what Muji is."

The pop-up shop, which opened last Friday, is at 625 S.W. 10th Ave. It's filled with about 300 different items that Muji sells, including stationery, pens, clothing, accessories and furnishings. A full-size Muji store typically has about 4,000 items for sale.

The company, which currently has 15 stores in the U.S. — and nearly 800 around the world — is betting big on Portland. The 11,000-square-foot store planned for the Meier & Frank Building will be Muji's second-largest in the U.S. It will be on the ground floor of the building along Southwest 5th Avenue.
