I am so excited about Old Pasadena’s latest store, Miniso. Have you seen it? Located in the old Kennith Cole spot on Colorado and Delacy, Miniso is an urbanite’s dream come true. The shop offers high quality goods for low prices, right in the heart of the city. Their purpose: “building a brand which stays close to people’s lives and possesses high fashion” ().
As a city dweller and shopper at heart, I love Miniso’s look on fashion. High quality items should be available to anyone. Which is why they dedicate their brand to “providing customers with quality, creative and low-price products” (). And indeed, are their prices reasonable, on average ranging between $2 to $20.
Items include everything from beauty and jewelry to kitchen and tech. Hair brushes, nail polish, makeup, earrings, notebooks, hats, sunglasses, headphones, mugs, hangers, vases—you name it, they probably sell it. Every product has a nice aesthetic too, which is part of Miniso’s philosophy of combing fashion and leisure. Pieces are pretty with clean lines and cute details. Making everyday items more enjoyable.
Sounds pretty simple, no? It might seem hard to imagine, but Miniso has become a billion dollar company in just under five years. The two founders, Japanese designer Miyake Junya and Chinese entrepreneur Ye Guofu, established the company in Tokyo, opening its first store in 2013. Today, Miniso is located in over 40 countries and regions, including the U.S., Canada, Russia, Singapore, Dubai, Korea, Malaysia, Hong Kong, and Macao. They have opened more than 1,800 stores and hope to add another 6,000 stores by 2020. (They’re so popular, they open on average 80-100 stores a month. A month!)
