I’ve only known the Marukai/Daiso located off Balboa Ave in San Diego. Anz had posted her excursion on her blog. I was super excited to go and check it out! I mean $1.50 for most of the items! How AWESOME is that! The Marukai/Daiso one is $1.98. The one she went to is located in Torrance, which is pretty far, not to bad though, 1 1/2 to 2 hrs depending on traffic. HOWEVER, I Googled some photos and someone posted that they were opening one in Irvine! Well they did on April 14th! It’s about 1 hr away! YES!!
This store is HUGE! They had pretty much everything! We got there around 11am, so there wasn’t too many people around! However, after eating lunch and visiting the other Marukai in Costa Mesa, my sister wanted me to bring her back something. Back again to Daiso we go and WHOA, sooo many people! There were some people simply amazed at the prices, as I’m assuming it’s their first time there like us. Everyone in line baskets full to the brim! Even I had to put back some things regardless that it’s $1.50! LOL
There is soo much stuff there! I can’t wait to go back! First time visit – SUCCESS
