Daiso Price Increase – Extra 60 Cents Per Item

I took advantage of the Thaipusam holiday to go to Daiso to buy a trolley-full of items because effective 1st March 2017, each normal item at Daiso Japan stores in Malaysia is being increased from RM5.30 to RM5.90! 

Yup, a whopping RM0.60! 

When the government implemented GST, the usual RM5 per item at Daiso cost an additional RM0.30, making it RM5.30 per item. 

Next month with the price increase, we are going to pay RM5.90 per item bought at Daiso.

I don’t know but I guess it is time to shop elsewhere as some of the items in Daiso really do not worth that much.

Whatever it is, I borong some stuffs there already that will last me until the end of the year and I still have until the end of this month to grab more stuffs that I’ve forgotten today. I’ll worry where to get my supplies again next year then… :roll:

    Ah well!!! We don’t have one here. We have 100 Yen but nothing really essential being sold there actually. Best thing – don’t buy! Save and don’t waste on the money – spend on needs not wants.

    I am not happy to hear about this increase. I hope the other shops selling RM5.30 items will not follow suit and increase their price.

    I agree, not all items are worth that price in Daiso. Since its hike in price for that GST, i don’t shop in Daiso anymore… Mr. DIY seems to offer better prices

    Wah! Luckily you alerted me to go and quickly borong from Daiso. While some may say not all things are cheap there, I would say that many-many things are still cheaper at Daiso. I just cannot list down all the items in this small comment box but I would say that shop wisely at Daiso.
