Following the successful launch of Super Stores in Times Square and Oxford Street, this prestigious Parisian location further solidifies our commitment to the ‘Super Store’ strategy and its role in elevating the customer experience and propelling our global brand recognition.”

MINISO’s ‘Super Store’ Concept

The Paris flagship, which is MINISO’s largest store in Europe, marks a significant milestone for MINISO’s ongoing global expansion, aligning perfectly with the brand’s ambitious ‘Super Store’ strategy.

MINISO’s ‘Super Store’ strategy focuses on establishing large-format stores in key, high-traffic areas. These Super Stores offer customers a truly immersive MINISO experience, showcasing the brand’s extensive product range across categories like household goods, cosmetics, stationery, and more.
