Ground Level, Next to Fish Pier and Opposite China Bar
Daiso opened its second Australian store in Westfield Doncaster today. No more having to drive all the way to Richmond, for those who live in the Eastern suburbs! The other advantage over its sister store at The Hive is that parking is free for 3 hours here.
This Daiso store seems a bit more spacious than its older sister in Richmond. Most of the aisles are wide enough for a pram; however, there are a few "baskets" of wares in some of the aisles which can make for an interesting obstacle course. And if there are a few prams and elderly citizens with frames in the shop (as there were today) there can be a bit of a pram jam! Still best to put bubs in a sling if possible!
The wares available are similar, and being the first day of opening, the shelves are well stocked. Lots and lots of goodies for the kids, and for me also! Top buys are eating and cooking utensils, storage boxes and baskets of all shape and sizes, and of course the kawaii stationery! Okay, I love knick knacks so pretty much the whole store is great, and at $2.80 each item it's way too easy to buy waaaaay too much! I won't post too many photos as it's all very similar to the ones I posted on my original post on Daiso in Richmond.
