As if we were't jealous enough of San Francisco for getting a Uniqlo, now they're getting a MUJI. It's just not fair that San Francisco will have access to "the Container store of the East" before Midwesterners who are [if not more] in need of compartmentalization and frosted white household items. Alas, according to the 2010 Census, Asians make up 33.3% of the population in SF and much less in Chicago at 5.5%. So we understand that SF may more quickly adhere to the store there (which has a parking lot), but we gosh darn hope Chicago is next. [Curbed]
