The Reliance Retail-Muji Collaboration
The partnership between Reliance Retail’s upmarket brands arm, Reliance Brands, and Muji began in 2015 with the aim of bringing Muji-branded stores to India. The recent strategy shift indicates plans for larger stores, some ranging from 20,000-22,000 sq. ft., to showcase an even more extensive and diverse portfolio of products akin to the Japanese brand’s offerings in various global markets.
Muji currently operates four stores in India, with three in Mumbai situated at Jio World Plaza Mall, Jio World Drive, and Phoenix Palladium Mall, and one in Noida at DLF Mall of India.
Global Presence of Muji
Founded in 1980, Muji derives its name from the Japanese phrase ‘Mujirushi Ryohin,’ translating to ‘no-brand quality products.’ This encapsulates Muji’s ethos of simplicity, quality, and design. The brand has gained a global presence, with over 1,000 stores across 31 countries, spanning three continents signifying its international acclaim and popularity.
