Founded by merchants Andrew Muir and Archibald Mirrielees in 1857, it was initially known as the “Muir and Mirrielees” trade company. Tsum, or Central Universal Department Store, is a top-tier luxury department store in Moscow.
The company became the first and largest department store in the pre-soviet Romanov Empire, and was and is still based in a six-storey Gothic Revival style building in the Tvserskoy District. The store carries more than 1,000 brands of fashion apparel, cosmetics and perfumery, jewellery, glass, china and gifts, a fusion restaurant (Tsum Globus Gourmet), a cigar room, a café, and a champagne bar.
Tsum is part of the Mercury Group, and played in a key role in many luxury mono-brands’ entry into the Russian market.
