Komonoya is a Japanese based store that sells most items for 60 baht each. The concept and the items are quite similar to Daiso. However, I noticed the difference is Komonoya sometimes have discounts compared to Daiso which is generally quite fixed in pricing. There are also items available in Komonoya that is not found in Daiso and vice versa.
Actually I came across this store quite by chance. I was going out and wished to buy nettings for washing machine that I would buy from Daiso. When I visited the particular Central outlet, I know there was a Daiso store but could not find it. Since another friend have mentioned about being able to get some interesting products from this store, I decided to go in to have a look.
Komoniya really sells all kinds of products ranging for home, kitchen room use, gardening, storage items, stationery, decorative items, bags, slippers, decorative hair accessories, stationery and creative products.
The store is quite small but one would be surprised the number of items that could fit into here.
Above is the small aisle for hair products.
Above there are bags- tote bags, recycle bags, small backpacks, makeup bag, water bottle holder, etc.
Below are slippers, mostly bedroom/home slippers, cute coin pouches and bags:
You also have office supplies and simple storage racks and containers that you can use to organize your office and home:
Below are some glass products- ice cream cups and glass jars. Glass jars can be used to store gift items such as cookies, spices (buying identical ones to make up a spice rack) and even loose coins (designate a place in your home to put loose coins that you find in these jars).
Below are small miniature artificial potted plants and porcelain statues used for home decoration:
Below are washing machine nettings of assorted sizes which is useful to wash delicate clothings or items such as washable pillows and toys. We bought about 4 washing machine nets of assorted sizes:
Then there are kitchen use items:
Stores such as Daiso and Komonoya often sells simple items that can be quite useful. We have previously bought microfibre mittens from Komonoya in the shape of the hand palm for 60 baht each which we found to be useful for quick wipes on our cars.
At the time of writing, Komonoya does not have an official website but just a Facebook page. There is a listing of their branches in this post but unfortunately is in Thai. Their Facebook page is https://www.facebook.com/KOMONOYATH.
