Hawaii Mom Blog: Daiso Hawaii Now Open!




December 13, 2018

Daiso Hawaii Now Open!

Daiso is now open in Hawaii!  Yesterday I attended the Grand Opening festivities of Daiso's first Hawaii location in Pearl City.

A popular stop in Japan for omiyage items, Daiso is known for their inexpensive, yet cute and practical products (I personally love buying snacks at Daiso).  I was so excited to hear Daiso was opening up in Pearl City.

Hundreds of guests lined up to be one of the first to get their hands on snacks, beauty products, housewares, craft items, toys, and more! 

Most of the items in the store are only $1.50 each, with select products priced as marked.  You're able to buy a bunch of items without breaking the bank!

It's the perfect place to stop for party favors and stocking stuffers!  You can find everything from chopsticks holders and sponges, to nail polish and musubi makers.

Part of the fun of shopping at Daiso is scouring the aisles for cool finds.

And the most popular item?  Customers were snatching up the Daiso Hawaii reusable bags (two designs available) by the dozens!
About Daiso Hawaii:
Daiso, Japan’s famous value store, held a highly anticipated grand opening at Pearl City Shopping Center today, welcoming hundreds of shoppers to its first Hawaii location.

HouseMart, the parent company of Daiso, Ben Franklin Crafts and Ace Hardware, hosted a grand opening event attended by corporate VIPs, local dignitaries and community leaders before officially opening the doors to the new store. The program featured a lively taiko performance by Taiko Center of the Pacific; speeches by co-owner Wayne Kamitaki and Consul General of Japan Koichi Ito; and a blessing ceremony performed by Reverend Bryan Yanagihara of Koboji Shingon Mission in Honolulu.

Shoppers lined up to be the first to explore the 5,000-square-foot retail space, filled with household goods, d├ęcor, cosmetics, stationery, toys, accessories, foods and more. Daiso treated the first 100 shoppers with goodie bags of store products, and held prize drawings to give away a 40” flat screen TV, Samsung tablet and gift cards.

“Since announcing our plans to open the first Daiso in Hawaii, we’ve been met with nothing but positive feedback and excitement from the community,” said Milton Fujii, director of imports for HouseMart. “We’re grateful that Hawaii residents are welcoming Daiso as a long-awaited shopping venture and invite everyone to experience the brand’s unique, quality items at affordable prices.”

Known for offering variety, quality and value, Daiso develops 99 percent of its merchandise inhouse and creates 500 new products every month. The majority of its items are affordably priced at $1.50.
