We would like MUJI to GO bus to bring MUJI items and services to those who would like to have the in-store shopping experience but have not been able to visit our Kamppi flagship store, especially during the pandemic. We wish to expand the tour to other areas in Finland in the future,” says Miho Takagi, Managing Director of MUJI Finland.
