The story of Gaurang and Gunjan
It’s just like in the movies: boy meets girl, girl meets boy, they talk and voila! A little cupid two years ago worked his magic over Gaurang and Gunjan at the MUJI store in Palladium. Gaurang, a fin-tech professional met Gunjan, a media professional while in the billing queue at the store. After their meeting at the MUJI store, they have been inseparable ever since.
Cupid at MUJI
And now, two years later, Gaurang secretly reached out to MUJI to let them sign their marriage certificate in the place they first met. With friends, family, and a magistrate to officially declare their love for one another, Gaurang planned a surprise for Gunjan exclusively at the MUJI store. (Boys, take notes!) MUJI is beyond ecstatic to play such a warm role in the lives of their consumers. MUJI is glad that it has not just been recognized as a retail store, but a space that engages, makes you feel good, helps you connect with people and build connections (for life, in this case).
The signing took place at the MUJI store in Palladium on 16th August. It was a small ceremony for close friends and family that MUJI was overjoyed to host. MUJI also planned something special with arrangements for them to sign the documents, and a few customized gifts as a memory of the event at MUJI. This was probably for the first time that a couple legally got married at a retail store and MUJI was excited to be a part of it. The couple tied the knot on 18th August, and MUJI gifted the couple customized Neck-Cushions, Bead sofas and an Aroma Diffuser with Essential oils.
Far from overemphasized capitalism, MUJI strives to create spaces for one to explore, discover & build connections, to go beyond mere purchases. Commenting on this epic saga, MUJI says they constantly strive to create moments that hold meaning. Moments, that become memories for a lifetime.
