El Paso fans of the Japanese lifestyle brand, Daiso, will be glad to know that the two stores that will call the Sun City their new home will be opening soon!

Last month, we learned that not only one, but two Daiso stores will be opening in El Paso; one on the east side and the other on the west side. Well, we know have an update on when doors will open!

East El Paso Daiso

Daiso's grand opening of the east side location is set for Saturday, June 1 from 9AM to 9PM. This Daiso will be located at the Las Palmas Marketplace at 11917 Gateway West Blvd.

We still don't know when the west side location will make its debut; but we know that it will be located at the Sierra Court Shopping Center at 7410 Remcon Circle.

What is Daiso?

Daiso is a popular Japanese retail chain that sells a wide variety of household goods, kitchenware, stationery, and other items at affordable prices. The company is known for its "100 yen shop" concept in Japan, where most items are priced at 100 Japanese yen (equivalent to around 1 USD or less). Think of it kind of like a Five Below, which is also fairly new in El Paso.

In addition to its standard product offerings, Daiso often introduces seasonal and limited-time items, making each store visit a unique shopping experience. The company has gained a global following for its value-for-money products and has become a favorite destination for shoppers looking for affordable and practical goods. It's recently become quite huge on social media- which of course just makes all of us excited to finally get one in El Paso!
