This is not the first Daiso store to grace the Australian retail market, with shops in Abbotsford, Doncaster, the QV Shopping Centre and Bourke Street CBD, although this is the first to open in Melbourne's largest shopping complex.

Daiso has been in operation since 1972, opening their very first 100 yen shop in Japan back in 1991. Since then, the organisation has become one of the market leaders in Japan, and has now opened approximately 3400 stores around the world.

You'll find all sorts of weird and wonderful here from fake eyelashes, crockery, cleaning equipment, craft supplies, toothbrushes, dog coats, packaged snack foods, money boxes, toys, gift cards and a whole lot more.

Everyone loves a bargain, which is no doubt why Chadstone shoppers are eager to fill their bags with all the things they didn't know they'd need or want.

If you do visit any one of Daiso Australia stores whether it be Chadstone or beyond, it can be overwhelming. You may well leave Daiso Australia buying items because of their bargain status, and not because you really need them.

Your Comment
Daiso is a place where I can spend hours discovering fabulous inexpensive items. It's gadget heaven. Our normal shops are SO expensive. Daiso sells the same/similar/better item for $2.80 - it made this year's birthday gifts very inexpensive.
The only problem is I don't read JAPANESE. The majority of Daiso stock carry NO english translation to explain what is inside the packet, including food items. In Australia this is ILLEGAL . Our LAW states products MUST carry English translations on the packet. Buying spray de-oderant might turn out to be spray glue or starch. Biscuits may be made with items to which you are allergic (nuts, eggs, preservatives, etc). Without the English translation you do no know what you are looking at, you can't if something is sweet or savory, what the chips are made from and if they contain PALM OIL!
Is yr child safe using/wearing, eating/drinking items when there is no explanation on the packet/box? Daiso must remedy this issue with haste, before someone gets really sick, injured or worse. That said - it is a fun place to shop.
