PEARL CITY (HawaiiNewsNow) - Hundreds came out Wednesday for the grand opening of Hawaii’s first Daiso location.

The popular Japanese bargain chain announced they were coming to Hawaii in early November, and excitement among shoppers was widespread.

The store at the Pearl City Shopping Center features household goods, from cosmetics to stationery to food items.

Daiso Japan is known for its wide selection of household products at extremely low prices. The chain has over 5,200 stores worldwide.

“Through high-volume purchases — in the millions for a single product — the Japanese variety store is able to keep costs down. With continued increases in cost of living, Daiso’s mission is to help consumers maintain a high standard of living without spending more,” the company said in a news release.
