In Japan, 100 yen shops, or one-coin shops, similar to dollar stores in the United States and pound shops in the U.K., are commonly known as "hyakkin". Daiso is a major player in the 100 yen shop industry - so much so that its name has become synonymous with "hyakkin".

Daiso has 2,500 stores in Japan, and 522 stores overseas.

The first Australian store will open in the Melbourne suburb of Abbotsford. Every item will cost just $2.80.

A lot of the products sold by Daiso are made in Japan so they should be of a much higher quality.

Daiso is growing at a rate of 20 to 30 stores a month in Japan.

Went to the one in Kuala Lumpur this year (5 ringgit per item).



Fantastic shop, for about $14 dollars I bought a cup holder, two frying pans, some giant chopsticks, and various other items.



Melbourne, you are lucky to be getting this!
^^ Yeah. I'm tired of getting ripped off in Australia. Everything is overpriced. We need more competition. That's why I love Costco and Aldi so much. Now Daiso. Take that woolworths the rip off merchant people!!!

There is a Japanese $2.50 shop opened recently in Bondi Junction. Its not as big as typical Daiso store, but there is still tons of products and the quality is unbelievably good!
Totally different from cheap made-in-china products you find in other discount stores.

We need a giant Hello Kitty store. It was so impossible for me to find any Hello Kitty undies in Sydney so I had to order them online. :angel:

I love 1 euro shops. Guess where you find the whole school whenever we're in Italy for a trip. Lots of stuff is more expensive than in the supermercato but who cares! It's ALL one euro!
