BIZNOTE FOLLOWUP: Daiso uncloaks at Westwood Village

Eight months after we first reported that Westwood Village had a Daiso store on the way, the space is finally sporting signage. We have been passing by every few days or so and noticed the signage this afternoon. Daiso is moving into a combined space (formerly SportClips and Fresh Vitamins) a few doors north of Ross. While the signage simply says “spring” for its projected opening, one WSB reader who’s a frequent customer at another Daiso store in the region says the staff there told him they’re aiming for May. The only other claimed-but-not-open-yet space at WWV is the future Panda Express north of QFC.

    Yay Daiso!

    I love Daiso. Here’s hoping the store’s permanent signage corrects the misspelling of stationery.

      Kind of obvious but I think it’s a fair adjective to use. Helps to distinguish from the more common Daiso mobile dollar cart.

      Maybe they actually meant the store isn’t mobile :)

      It shows confidence. They don’t plan on moving 😁

    I’ve always heard great things about this store. So very curious and excited it’ll be in our area. I think Panda will really thrive too.

    Daiso AND a Panda Express?!? This will get me back to Westwood! I’m thrilled

    Was just thinking about Daiso and wondering when it’ll open. Will be such a great addition to Westwood Village. And yes, stationery (what they meant) and stationary — the English language is a challenge!

    Great news! Loved my first experience at a Daiso in Bellingham and thrilled we’ll have a store in West Seattle.

    Excited for Daiso, wish we had a Muji, too!

    While I’m not thrilled by any store that is a shrine to plastics manufacturing, Panda Express will be a great addition to WWV.

    • Rhonda March 14, 2024 (10:20 pm)

      The shrine to plastics is about 300 feet to the southwest 🎯

    • WS resident March 16, 2024 (12:02 am)

      Panda Express’ food is to humans what plastics are to the environment. Neither of them are a great addition.

    Finally, Chinese-made junk products will be available in the US! Can’t wait to support the children and prisoners toiling in happiness to satisfy our love of buying newstuff.

Sorry, comment time is over.
