Japan’s Version Of Dollarama Is Opening In Calgary This Weekend

Get ready to go on a shopping spree at this adorable new store. According to a social media announcement, Oomomo is opening in Calgary on Saturday, December 14. With locations in Ontario, Alberta, Winnipeg and B.C., this Japanese 100-yen store has an endless selection of goodies for super cheap. Finally, Calgary gets to experience it too.

Oomomo is known for carrying over 18,000 high-quality items from Japan. Founded in 2017 in Edmonton, this Japanese variety store has since expanded and now operates 10 stores in Canada. 

This store carries everything from beauty and home products to arts and crafts. And if you like Japanese snacks, this spot will be your new go-to. 

Oomomo's products are imported from Japan and are hard to find anywhere else. 

Most of its items come from Serie, which is Japan's second-largest 100-yen shop with over 1,376 stores across Japan. It also carries products featuring classic characters you know and love like Hello Kitty, Melody, and Rilakkuma. 

Even though the items are high quality, they are incredibly affordable. Most are priced at around $3.

Oomomo says that it brings "trending products in Japan into Canada every month.” Based on the success it has had so far, it's no surprise that another Alberta store is on its way.

According to a press release, the first 200 people to show up to the Calgary Pacific Place Mall store opening on Saturday will receive a $10 gift card. 

There will also be a free gift card giveaway in-store worth up to $100. 

We suggest arriving early, as Oomomo always seems to draw big opening day crowds.

Oomomo also carries popular makeup and skincare brands that are unique to Japan. 

The store is also known for its huge selection of adorable storage and organizing containers, so you can Marie Kondo your life in style.

Oomomo's website says that there are stores in Winnipeg, Markham, West Edmonton, North Edmonton, Downtown Vancouver, Burnaby, and Richmond. 

Also this weekend, Oomomo will be opening their fourth B.C. location at Burnaby's Metrotown mall.

Just one year ago, the company opened a new location in North York, Ontario. 

While Calgary is the newest location, the franchise is set to open up a second location Burnaby, B.C.
