Since its foundation, MINISO has been popular among consumers due to its comfortable shopping environment, good, affordable products and special business model of global design, international marketing and being made in China.

After focusing on markets in Japan and China, MINISO has successively signed strategic cooperation agreements with 36 other counties and regions, among which the United States is the most developed.
