[WORLDKINGS] The famous shopping centers and supermarkets in the world – P24 – Daiso (Japan) : The fun and quirky 100-yen shop brand

17-12-2020

(WorldKings.org) Daiso is one of Japan’s 100-yen shop brands, known for offering a massive variety of unique and quirky products. Almost everything can be bought for a mere 100 yen (that’s less than a dollar!), with only a few exceptions.

Daiso Industries Co., Ltd. is a large franchise of 100-yen shops founded in Japan. Its headquarters are in Higashihiroshima, Hiroshima Prefecture.

Daiso was originally opened first as a street vending shop dealing with 100-yen products known as “Yano Shoten" by Hirotake Yano in 1972. He later founded Daiso in 1977.

 

 

Daiso often uses such locations as previous pachinko parlours for its retail outlets. They spend a lot of money on shelving and fixtures to help the stores compete with more high-end retailers. The stock of items retailed at each shop is varied frequently in order to increase repeat customers.

 

 

Daiso categorizes all of its own branded items on sale using the morpheme za (ザ), the Japanese representation of the English word "the", plus a category. In 2004, Daiso started selling items priced at multiples of 100 yen, such as 200, 300, 400 or 500 yen.

 

 

Daiso has a range of over 100,000 products, of which over 40 percent are imported goods, many of them from China, Korea, and Japan. Many of their products are house-hold items such as kitchenware and cleaning products. Daiso has 2,800 stores in Japan, and 700 stores overseas in 25 countries and regions worldwide as of 20 April 2017.
