Famed Japanese discount store Don Quijote has opened its first store in Orchard Central mall on Friday (Dec 1).
The store, which will operate round the clock, will be called Don Don Donki - because a Don Quijote restaurant already exists here in Dempsey Road.
However, the double-storey 1,397 sqm Singapore outlet promises to have the same range and eclectic mix of products as its outlets in Japan.
The brand is known for offering a wide variety of made- and designed-in-Japan products - everything from toilet paper to second-hand Rolex watches - under one roof, often at low prices.
Founded in 1978 by current chairman Takao Yasuda, the brand now has 368 stores in Japan, Hawaii and the United States.
