Time Out Melbourne


Customers of Japanese discount variety chain Daiso come in several forms. There are those in search of authentic Japanese products you can’t find anywhere else: food, drinks, beauty products and homewares. There are those who can’t get enough of the adorable patterned crockery, stationary and tablecloths. There are those savvy enough to know that Daiso stocks cold-brew coffee filters that usually cost five times the price. There are those who get their kicks from ogling weird stuff, like the series of ‘Classic American Magazine’ posters of glazed ham ads. The one thing that unites them? The unique joy of knowing that everything you pick up is $2.80. Every. Thing.

Plus, good news if you're an outer-suburbs dweller: Daiso has recently expanded to Highpoint, Chadstone, Doncaster and Caroline Springs.
