Here’s a sneak peek at the Japanese households essentials store, Oomomo, opening at St. Vital Shopping Centre soon.

It will be taking over the former Moxie’s Grill & Bar location at the mall. The first Oomomo location in Canada opened at West Edmonton Mall in 2017. The company hopes to open up to two dozen stores across western Canada.

The success of other Japanese retailers has inspired Oomomo, which is Japan’s equivalent of a dollar store, to branch off into Canada. The actual price range for products will be about $3 and largely made in Japan.

A market for Japanese products that are cute, innovative and fun had existed for some time. The company expects to stock around 20,000 different items.
