Grand opening attracts customers to Daiso at Kent Station

Japanese variety store features many items between $1.75 to $1.99

Daiso, a Japanese variety and value store with most items priced $1.75 to $1.99, had its grand opening July 16-17 at Kent Station.

Daiso, 438 Ramsay Way, opened in the former Coldwater Creek location across from Duke’s Seafood restaurant at the shopping center. The location had been empty since Coldwater Creek closed in 2014 when the Idaho-based women’s clothing chain announced the closure of all its stores.

The company promotes itself as exciting, fun, quality, cute and uniqueness at an affordable price. The products range from stationery, kitchen, cosmetics, home goods and more. Daiso is known for its wide selection of high quality household products at an affordable price, and has been opening on average 10~20 stores every month globally.

Daiso has 3,620 stores in Japan and 2,272 stores overseas, including locations in Federal Way, Tukwila, Bellevue and Seattle.

People lined up outside the Kent store over the weekend to check out the bargains.
