When my very fat boss told me to write this article, I thought he was simply crazy.

Well, crazier than usual, I mean.

But not only there are such shops hidden within Singapore, one of them just opened here in Dec 2017.

1. ValuDollar

I believe this shop need no introduction. After all, they’re everywhere.

From shampoo to chocolate from the US and everything in between, you can spend hours shopping inside.

Just take note that most of their shops have very little walking space so try and go during off-peak period, yeah?

Fun fact: The ValuDollar at Sembawang Shopping Centre is rumoured to be the cheapest among all ValuDollar stores in Singapore.

Even more fun fact: Sembawang Shopping Centre is not beside Sembawang MRT Station (that’s Sun Plaza).

Location: Too many stores.

2. Mijyi

If you’re looking to while your hours away searching for cheap steals, Mijyi might just be the right place for you.

Featuring cheap imported items from Japan, their stores are large and confusing, perfect for you to get lost in the hunt for deals.

They also import items from countries like Korea, Taiwan, USA among many others and re of pretty good quality.

We’ve written about this $2 Japanese store back in 2017, and they’ve grown a bit since then.

In Apr 2017, 2WO only has one store located at Star Vista.

Fast forward 1 year later and they have 4 different outlets located in the North, Central, East and West of Singapore.

This one is sure to bring back the feels. It looks and feels like a mama shop, and sell small household items and storage solutions like small containers, stationery and many others.

The main highlight of this shop? Not only are there $2 items, there are plenty of $1 items to dig for as well.

This is the one.

And everything goes for just $2.

When we wrote about this back in 2017, we said it was super ulu because it’s located in Changi City Point.

But you’ll be happy to know that they’re in more accessible places now.

For the westies, you can check out their store at Westgate. Their other outlet can be found in Suntec City.

Similar to Daiso, they offer Japanese products at $2. The only difference from Daiso is that they offer more Japanese candies and tidbits.

Perfect for tamjiak people.

7. OneDollarOnly Store

Unlike the other stores mentioned in this article, this OneDollarOnly store is unique. In the sense that it doesn’t have a physical shop.

They sell knick-knacks from notebooks, stationary, nylon bags and party stuff.

While it’s called the $1 store, not everything is priced at a buck, but still pretty cheap.

Just take note that some of their stuff has to be ordered in bulk.

You can check them out here.
