We all know that living in Toronto can be mighty expensive, especially for millennials. That's why young adults have been going crazy for Oomomo, Japan's version of Dollarama that introduced its first store in Canada last year. Now, bargain-hunters can revel in the news that Oomomo is adding a brand-new flagship store right here in the Greater Toronto Area.
Oomomo has been bringing trendy products from Japan to Canada, delivering quality goods at an affordable price. From kitchenware to school supplies, beauty products and snacks, Oomomo truly is a one-stop shop for all of your lifestyle needs.
Ontario got its first Oomomo store in North York, located at 896 Don Mills Road. After opening up two stores in British Columbia and two stores in Alberta, Oomomo is now adding an additional store in Ontario.
But don't expect this new location to be any regular store; Oomomo's new Ontario retail outlet will be a 25,000 square foot flagship store - the chain's biggest store yet! Oomomo has also announced that the new Ontario location will have an extended collection of products, or - as the company likes to call them - "Japanese life hacks."
The new Oomomo store will be located in First Markham Place at 3255 Hwy 7, in Markham, Ontario. The store officially opens on Sunday, June 2nd, and will feature limited-time pop-up stations that Oomomo claims will visually transport customers to Japan without leaving the GTA. There's no better way to experience a taste of Japanese culture without leaving the city!
Time and time again, Canadians continue to fall in love with Oomomo's products. Why? Quite frankly, Oomomo is completely different than other retail chains. According to Jesica Chan of Sweven Media, "they carry unique Japanese products aimed at solving everyday problems which one can't commonly find in Western brands."
For example, Oomomo's stapler actually doesn't use staples at all. Instead, the stapler cuts a tiny tab into the paper and tucks it into a slit. Pretty innovative, if you ask me!
