The Marui brand of department stores seems to enjoy shifting things around every few years regarding their Shinjuku branches, and Friday, February 20th will reopen the former Marui City 2 as Marui One, featuring many of the Lolita and Goth brands you know and love. The former Marui One is now Marui Curren, as a side note.
Here's the full shop list in the new Marui One. You can click on different floors to see the exact layout, and on the shops on the floor maps themselves to see what brand that is, if you have a burning desire to know exactly where on the floor your favorite store is. ;)
