HONOLULU (KHON2) - Daiso, Japan’s famous value store, announced its second location today, just three months after opening its first store at the Pearl City Shopping Center. Located at 1024 Piikoi street, the Honolulu store will open on a limited hours basis from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday. Expanded store hours of operation will be announced at a future date.
HouseMart, the parent company of Ace Hardware, Ben Franklin Crafts and 3Katto’s flagship brand Daiso, successfully opened its first Daiso store in Pearl City in December 2018. The overwhelming demand by local residents prompted the company to expand to a second location on the corner of Piikoi and Young streets. Because parking is limited and positions are still being filled, the company will only open on a limited hours basis in the near term.

“Over the past three months, our customers have told us that Daiso has met an unfulfilled demand for unique, quality items at affordable prices,” said Milton Fujii, president of 3Katto, exclusive operator of Daiso Hawaii. “We are excited to open this second location to bring the Daiso experience to more people.”
With a reputation for offering variety, quality and value, Daiso develops 99 percent of its merchandise in-house and creates 500 new products every month. The majority of its items are affordably priced at $1.50.
