Beloved Japanese dollar store Daiso has a cult following for a reason—it's jam-packed with inexpensive toys, Japanese treats, items for the home and other adorable, kitschy stuff you'll want to grab straight away. We have some great news: Daiso is opening a new store in NYC (40-24 College Point Boulevard in the Shops at Skyview Center), so you won't have to travel far to get your hands on these sweet products.
SecretNYC reports that Daiso will debut on Friday March 8 at 10am with a grand opening celebration, and the first 100 customers will reportedly get a complimentary goodie bag with their purchases. Be sure to ask for a Great Prize Giveaway ticket (as available) at the front of the store before 4:30pm on March 8: Daiso is giving away a handful of big-ticket items and gift cards.
