Japanese discount chain Don Quijote gets quite the warm welcome wherever it sets up shop, perhaps because it’s a shopaholic wonderland with shelves crammed full of electronics, cosmetics, home ware, snacks, groceries, toys, and other random quirky stuff. The megastore covers everything, essentially, and it’s bringing its entire haul to its first Hong Kong store this year.
Replacing retailer Collect Point’s 15,000 sq ft basement space in Mira Place Two at Tsim Sha Tsui, the outlet will likely launch in July, making it the fifth international location for the Tokyo-based brand after its home country, Singapore, Hawaii, and an upcoming one in Bangkok this year.
But don’t expect it to open 24/7 like it does in Japan — currently, word on the street is that the Hong Kong shop will probably only stay open from 7am to midnight. Besides general goods and fresh produce, the store is also set to offer a cafe space.
