Fans of Japan’s biggest chain of discount stores Don Quijote (nothing to do with the classic Miguel de Cervantes novel Don Quixote) can start saving up since Hong Kong is finally getting its own branch of the cheap-goods store this summer at Tsim Sha Tsui’s Mira Place 2.
Known for stocking a plethora of handy lifestyle products, like kitchenware, electronics, furniture, cosmetics, clothing and even snacks, at incredibly budget prices, Don Quijote already boasts more than 150 branches across Japan. But what makes it hugely popular, especially with tourists, is the late-night opening hours – some are even 24-hours. Looks like there’s going to be some tough competition for budget chains like Japan Home Centre and Living Plaza.
Though news is still scarce on the ground (and whether the Hong Kong branch will enjoy the same late-night openings), we do know that the budget store will be replacing the 15,000 sq ft space currently occupied by fashion retailer Collect Point in Mira Place, and is scheduled to open around summertime this year. So watch this space for the latest deets!
