Japanese discount operator, Don Quijote (known as Donki) is launching its first stores in Thailand next week and in Hong Kong in July.
Don Quijote is well-known for its fun, ceiling-hanging merchandising, colourful and eclectic mix of products in-store, e.g. costumes, general merchandise, food and grocery, cosmetics and souvenirs.
Donki's grand opening in Thailand will be on 22nd February at the junction Ekkamai 5, Bangkok. For its launch in Hong Kong, the retailer has leased 1,394 sq m / 15,000 sq ft in the basement of Mira Place Two on Nathan Road, Tsim Sha Tsui. The new store will look to appeal to tourists, especially those from the Mainland travelling via the new high-speed rail service or through the Hong Kong–Zhuhai–Macau Bridge.
Don Quijote entering Thailand and Hong Kong will mark the retailer's third and fourth overseas foray, after entering Singapore on 1st December 2017 and Hawaii back in 2006. While in its home market, Japan, the retailer operates approx. 160 stores, many of which trade 24 hours. Last month, it acquired UNY hypermarkets in Japan, making it a fully owned subsidiary.
