In September 2020, MUJI temporarily closed their outpost in Shangri-La Plaza in Mandaluyong City. The closure was due to the expansion and renovation of the store, which will turn the previously 400-square meter MUJI branch into a 1,400-square meter space—more than triple the original size. Around 4,000 items will be available in the new store.

MUJI opened a pop-up store in the mall's Main Wing in place of the temporarily closed outpost, which closed on February 14.

The largest branch will offer new products and services that you can't get at any other MUJI stores in the country.

Aside from MUJI’s usual lineup of home essentials, furniture, stationery, apparel, toiletries, and more, the new MUJI in Shangri-La Plaza will exclusively introduce new products and services to the Philippine market, one being MUJI Labo, MUJI’s unisex clothing line. According to MUJI's U.S. website, MUJI Labo is composed of "unisex basic wear that is suitable for all ages and body types" and avoids "unnecessary fashion embellishments." The pieces sport a simple and streamlined aesthetic with colors and silhouettes that allow for easy coordination.

Aside from a new line of apparel, the new MUJI store will also offer consultation services for furniture, storage, interior, and wardrobe styling with product recommendations provided by MUJI advisors.

Customers can consult with an Interior Advisor who will help you "visualize a space-efficient home with simplicity in mind" and give furniture and storage recommendations that would best fit your lifestyle. The Styling Advisor, on the other hand, can help refresh your wardrobe by recommending MUJI apparel fit for your lifestyle and personal taste. Lastly, the Experience Advisor helps customers choose from and understand the different stationery, health, and beauty products MUJI offers.

The new MUJI store will have its very own water-refilling station.

The newly expanded MUJI Shangri-La Plaza will be the first in the country to have a water-refilling station. In this way, MUJI aims to promote recycling and waste reduction by introducing a new line of reusable water bottles, priced at P160 each, that encourage customers to ditch single-use plastics. Inside the store, there will be a water-refilling station that you can use for free instead of having to buy drinks that create unnecessary waste.

MUJI will be offering their bestselling items at lower prices.

With the opening of the biggest MUJI store in the country, the Japanese brand will be lowering the prices of some of its bestselling items, especially basic life essentials that customers would need to use on a daily basis. The process of repricing the items is known as a Price Review and MUJI continuously aims to revisit their popular finds and offer them at better prices. Due to the current state of our daily lives, MUJI has made sure to include products in the Price Review that can be used for "daily activities such as working from home, running errands, or even relaxing."
