Retail News: Daiso will open fifth Houston store next week

The Willowbrook Daiso will be in the former Avenue spot in Willowbrook Commons 7740 FM 1960, Houston, TX 77070

Daiso will open its fifth Houston area store next week on March 29th. The Japanese Yen Shop is a rough equivalent of an American Dollar Store. Generally, the quality of Daiso items is higher than expected at Dollar Tree or Family Dollar. That being said, the prices reflect this, ranging from $1.75 to just over $15. This location is Daiso’s 92nd in the United States, after only arriving in the country just over 15 years ago. Daiso is planning to hold a grand opening event the following Saturday and Sunday (April 1 & 2). The first 100 customers to spend over $30 on either day will receive a “goodie bag.” Daiso’s competition in Houston includes recent newcomer Chinese “copycat” retailer, Miniso. This will be Daiso’s 16th store in Texas.
