Considering the ever-rising prices in shopping malls, anytime Canadians can find a new wallet-friendly place to shop, it's a pretty big deal. However, this new location that has arrived in Ontario is especially exciting considering it's already part of a well-known and loved Japanese chain.
Named "Oomomo," the store sells everything from beauty and cooking products to arts and crafts. They have an incredible roster of items, including Japenese products you can't find anywhere else, such as Daiso. Plus, most of their products are priced at around $3.00 CAD. It's basically the perfect combination of Home Sense, MUJI, and Dollarama.
Of course, any store that's dedicated to quality and affordability is a surefire success in Canada. Though Oomomo's goal isn't just to do that, but to also "bring trending products in Japan into Canada every month."
The store got its start in Edmonton back in summer 2017, but just this past weekend, they opened their North York location after plenty of success so far. Fans were even so excited to see the products and experience the store for themselves that they lined up ahead of the store's opening to ensure they got in first.
Thankfully for Canadians who aren't able to get to Edmonton or Ontario to check out the spectacle for themselves, Oomomo is planning to expand even more in Canada. They are currently planning to open a store in Vancouver, Burnaby in British Columbia, as well as another Edmonton location in North Edmonton, and finally a Markham, Ontario, storefront.
Considering they have over 8000 products at their stores, there's something for everyone, and it's definitely a place you should consider stopping by anytime you need to find a special gift or just want to have a fun time browsing around at awesome stuff.
