If you're looking for specific things for your home, craving some Japanese snacks, or just bored, you should check 98 Cents Marukai! I never leave the store without at least a basketful of items, whether it's food, cute stationary, dishes, or those wonderful clear plastic baskets for organizing the house.
It has just about everything that other 99 cent stores have, but the things here just have more character.
I'm only sad that they raised prices from 98 cents to $1.50. You can still find some items for 98 cents or less, but most things are $1.50. BUT, I think everything's still worth it!
Pros: CHEAP!, immense variety, fun experience
